Field Experience in Archaeology

Imagine the thrill of uncovering actual artifacts used by people hundreds or even thousands of years ago. During Spring Break, UM students will have the opportunity to take part in ongoing archaeological fieldwork in western Puerto Rico. As a part of APY502, students will travel to Puerto Rico and gain hands-on experience in archaeological field techniques under the direction of Anthropology Department Professor Will Pestle.

Admission to APY502 and participation in this project can only occur with written permission of the instructor. Fieldwork will take place over Spring Break. Interested students should contact Dr. Pestle at w.pestle@miami.edu.
