Strawbery Banke Museum
This course is intended to offer students training in archaeological methodology. Because social science research has been interrupted by COVID-19, archaeologists have increased reliance on mediated techniques to continue their research. This virtual field school offers a series of five asynchronous, self-paced modules including material and digital techniques that participants can explore and apply. These modules include:
Strawbery Banke Archaeology
Artifact Curation, Conservation, and Interpretation
Final Public Product
The course culminates in participants’ development of an online StoryMap and/or blog post to share the results of a self-led research question. The instructor provides videos from the museum grounds and lab, course readings, and exercises.
Period(s) of Occupation: Historical Archaeology
Project Size: 1-24 participants
