US- CT Mohegan Archaeology Field School


The Mohegan field school studies colonial-era sites on the Mohegan Reservation in an innovative collaborative setting. The study of reservation households sheds new light on the rhythms and materiality of everyday life during tumultuous times while providing valuable perspectives on the long-term outcomes of colonial repression, survivance, interaction, and exchange. The field school brings together students and staff of diverse backgrounds to learn about colonial history, the history of North American archaeology, and—most importantly—the often-troubled relationship between archaeologists and indigenous communities. The field school runs as an equal partnership between the Tribe and an academic archaeologist.

All meals are provided through the Connecticut College cafeteria, open 7am to 7pm. Students eat breakfast and dinner in the cafeteria, but are expected to pack a lunch for each day in the field.

On that day, all students will be responsible for arranging and purchasing their own meals.
