The University of Calgary is offering a volunteer excavation program at Blackfoot Crossing Historical Park (http://www.blackfootcrossing.ca) this summer. Participants will excavate alongside members of the Archaeology Field School at the famous Cluny Fortified Village site. First time participants will receive an optional tour of the Blackfoot Crossing Historical Park Interpretive Centre and an introductory tour of the archaeological site. Volunteers will be supervised by experienced University of Calgary graduate students. Training in archaeological excavation techniques will be provided on site. All artifacts from the site are the property of the Siksika Nation and, ultimately, will be stored at Blackfoot Crossing Historical Park Interpretive Centre.
