2023 Archaeology Field school -  ANTH 4510

June 26 – August 4, M-Thurs 8 am - 4:30 pm

The University of Toledo Archaeology Field Methods course (ANTH 4510) is a hands-on opportunity to learn how to excavate and document an archaeological site in the context of a research project. This year’s field school will research a portion of Fort Miamis, a late 18th/early 19th century British fort in Maumee, OH, which served as a military outpost during the Battle of Fallen Timbers and again in the War of 1812.

The goal of the project is to determine whether, and to what extent, fort architecture is present adjacent to the park and whether activities outside of the fort can be identified. Over the six-week course (SSII), students will learn the methods archaeologists use to identify, map, excavate, and interpret archaeological artifacts and deposits.

If you are interested in enrolling in the course, UT students can enroll via their myUtoledo access:
