Finding a project
A few places to look for projects are
- The Archaeological Institute of America's Archaeological Fieldwork Opportunities Bulletin
- Earthwatch (but note that these can be expensive)
- The Agora in Athens is an excellent place to dig, in part because they excavate well, they don't charge, they cover most expenses, and it's a good way to meet lots of other people with similar interests. However, getting onto it is competitive, and while they do accept undergraduates and have accepted Dartmouth students in the past, they prioritize accepting graduate students (they interview potential excavators). For more information, go to the American School of Classical Studies in Athens site. The deadline is typically mid-December.
- The Passport in Time program of the USDA Forest Service
- The Vermont Archaeological Society keeps a list of projects in Vermont
- The New Hampshire State Conservation and Rescue Archaeology Program runs low-cost historical and prehistoric field schools
- Dartmouth Archaeology Working Group field school and internships page
- Professor Hruby's office door, Reed 314 (once you can get there), where she posts opportunities that she hears about
- You may also wish to consider internships with archaeological laboratories, museums, and other relevant organizations.
Check these sites and locations early and often; many are updated periodically.
