Project Description:

Join the RLA’s field school in historic downtown Hillsborough, North Carolina, between May 15–June 20, 2019. Excavations will be based at the Wall site, a Native American town occupied by ancestral Shakori and Eno Indians (tribes local to the Chapel Hill area) in the 1500s and early 1600s, just prior to the arrival of European settlers. This field season continues the RLA’s long-standing Siouan Project begun in the 1980s to understand how Native Siouan-speaking peoples living in what is today central North Carolina responded to European colonization. We are currently accepting applications from prospective students.
