Windsor, CT

The Connecticut State Museum of Natural History at UConn will conduct a Archaeology Field School for Veterans and Active Duty Military Personnel on Monday, July 23 through Friday, July 27, 9 am to 3 pm each day. State Archaeologist Dr. Brian Jones will lead the field school, which will take place in Windsor, CT.

Veterans and active duty military personnel will spend a week doing hands-on archaeology at an Archaeology Field School sponsored by the Connecticut State Museum of Natural History and Office of State Archaeology. The field school will cover the basics of field methods, paperwork, data management, and artifact identification. Learning proper archaeological methods will develop the participant’s understanding of the ethical aspects of archaeology and the archaeologist’s responsibility to preserve the data they retrieve so that it will remain valuable to future researchers.

Participants of this program will have the opportunity to experience an official Connecticut Office of State Archaeology dig at a historic site in Windsor, Connecticut. Space is limited. To request a registration form please contact David Colberg at or 860.486.5690.

Presented by the Office of State Archaeology and Connecticut State Museum of Natural History, part of the UConn Office of Public Engagement.
