During practical component (last two weeks of August, Monday-Friday 9:00 am – 5:00 pm) students have responsibility for recording/documenting an archaeological site in the field, including survey and detailed mapping.

During weekly laboratory sessions September – December students process, identify, and catalogue artifacts, and learn to write an archaeological report and site record form.
