Project Description:

This summer, the Archaeological Field School at Hartwick’s Pine Lake Environmental Campus will offer “Field Research in Archaeology,” an advanced course for undergraduates that introduces students to the basic methods that archaeologists use to identify, excavate, record, and interpret archaeological sites. The session, which runs from June 1 to July 1, 2022, is open to students from all majors.

Hartwick Assistant Professor of Anthropology Dr. Namita Sugandhi will conduct the four-week session with SUNY Oneonta Lecturer in Archaeology Cynthia Klink. The course – a combination of classroom lecture and fieldwork – provides students first-hand experience with methods and skills of excavation, as well as field and lab procedures for processing materials recovered during excavation.

Period(s) of Occupation: This is a multi-component site. In previous years, field school students have excavated areas associated with the Late Archaic period (3000-1000 BCE).
