Suggested Fields
Post Date

Come join the RLA’s FIELD SCHOOL in ARCHAEOLOGY during Summer Session 1 (May 17–June 22, 2023). Learn locally — Live locally!

This summer’s field school will continue to assess areas along New Hope Creek in Duke Forest that have significant potential to contain important late pre-colonial and colonial American Indian settlements. Archaeological survey and test excavations undertaken this summer will reveal new insights into Indigenous land use practices and settlement of Siouan-speaking peoples who occupied the area during the past thousand years and whose descendants still reside here today.
