This course provides a hands-on introduction to field, laboratory, and analytical methods in archaeology, focusing on historic-period American Indian sites in the Finger Lakes region. Students collectively will generate new archaeological data, beginning the semester with study of an under-considered archaeological museum collection, and moving to survey and excavation at an archaeological site as the weather permits. Students will have an opportunity to formulate and test their own research designs in laboratory and field settings. Readings will provide an in-depth immersion into field and laboratory methodology, research design, and the culture history and material culture typologies appropriate to the site and era. In addition to laboratory and field work, students will write a 15-page term paper based on original data which can draw on museum collections, field data, documentary sources, or a combination of these sources. Most class time will be spent off-campus; transportation will be arranged by the instructor. Permission of the Instructor is required; please contact the instructor for specific information about the sites and collections that will form the basis of the semester’s work.
