High School Field School 2019 - Center for American Archeology, Kampsville, IL


Signup for one to four weeks on the archeological field crew at the Golden Eagle site (11C120).

Join the CAA field crew at Golden Eagle site, the only known prehistoric site with an enclosing embankment in the Illinois River Valley. CAA has been investigating this enigmatic site since 2013, beginning with large-scale remote sensing surveys across the site that revealed intact archaeological deposits such as the ditch-and-embankment structure enclosing the site. In 2014, we began initial archaeological testing of the ditch-and-embankment enclosure. Subsequent fieldwork has focused on other parts of the enclosure and the portion of the site near mound 2. During the 2018 field season, we investigated a portion of the eastern embankment. We'll continue our work there in 2019

Open to high school students ages 13-17. No experience necessary.

Dates: June 9-July 6, 2019
Cost: $850-3300

Scholarships are available though our Women in Archeology Scholarship and the Kampsville Legacy Scholarship.
