Historical Archaeology Camp
|History and Archaeology of St. Louis||
|Enroll now in a new, innovative summer session for high school students on the campus of Saint Louis University. Field Methods in Historical Archaeology is designed to introduce high school students to the methods and techniques of historical and archaeological research, and combines the two disciplines in an enriching and challenging manner. Students will learn about the history of St. Louis through the use of primary sources and will analyze demographic, cartographic and civic records related to landscapes of the campus of Saint Louis University. Then, students will apply that research to formulate an archaeological research program that will involve surveying, geophysical surveying, satellite imagery analysis, and excavation. At the conclusion of the three week session students will assemble a research presentation that will analyze the acquired data collectively.
Week One: Historical Research
Week Two: Field Survey and Archaeological Excavation
Week Three: Excavation and Laboratory Work
