2015 Archaeological Field School at the Wall Site

Have you ever wanted to participate in an archaeological excavation? This course will give you the opportunity to do just that while earning six hours of college credit and fulfilling the experiential education requirement. It also will fulfill one of your requirements for the UNC Major in Archaeology. UNC's 2015 summer field school in North American archaeology will excavate the late pre-contact Wall site outside of Hillsborough in Orange County, North Carolina (just north of Chapel Hill). This excavation is part of on-going archaeological research to obtain significant evidence about Native Americans in the Carolina Piedmont immediately before and during the period of contact with Europeans. It promises to be an exciting project.
