Info Session: 2024 MTU Summer Archaeology Field School

by Dan Trepal, Social Sciences

Are you looking for some summer credits but don’t want to sit in a classroom? Join us in Walker 120A today (Oct. 17) from 5-6 p.m. for an info session about our 2024 MTU Archaeology Field School!

We will be exploring both ancient and 19th century copper mining archaeology at the Delaware Mine site on the Keweenaw Peninsula during our seven-week 2024 Summer Track B program. You will get outdoors to learn all the field skills of the modern archaeologist, including survey, testing, excavation and digital recording techniques. You will also get a taste of public archaeology as we share our finds with the community. In addition, we will tour a number of other historical and archaeological sites in the Keweenaw that place our own site in the broader context of ancient and historical human activity in the Lake Superior region.

Enrollment is limited, and our class will fill quickly, so visit the field school website and submit our short application form today!
