Field School in Heritage Archaeology

The field school recently partnered with the W.E.B. Du Bois National Historic Site, an organization in Great Barrington supporting the development of a community wide plan to celebrate the work of W.E.B. Du Bois, with the Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association’s project to present the African American history of Franklin County, and with the Pan African History Museum USA of Springfield a community based museum that presents the African American history of the Springfield area. In the past we have also worked with Historic Deerfield, Inc., a regional museum of New England history.
