      If you know of any students who are looking for some archaeological field
      school experience this summer, our university is looking for a few
      candidates. Please feel free to forward to any interested parties.

      University of Northern British Columbia/Cariboo Tribal Council (CTC)

      2002 Archaeology Field School


      July 2-August 23

      At Gustafsen Lake,
      in the central Interior of British Columbia



      The classes

      This is an intense eight-week field school that comprises two courses
      worth 6 credits each (12 credits total); ANTH 416 (Archaeological Field
      Methods) and ANTH 417 (Archaeological Research Projects) will run
      concurrently through the length of the field school. Registration in
      both courses is mandatory. Maximum enrollment is 8 students. In
      addition, 8 students from various communities under the CTC will also be
      participating.

      Students will be instructed on basic survey and mapping procedures, as
      well as excavation techniques. All participants will receive training in
      concepts and methods relevant to both consulting and academic
      archaeology.


      The set up

      Students, community members, instructors and visitors will live in a
      tent camp situation for the duration of the field school. Field
      conditions will be rough but comfortable, as there are few amenities
      available in the immediate area. The nearest center is 100 Mile House,
      located about an hour away. Students will be required to participate in
      kitchen duty on a rotational basis. Because this is a field camp
      situation, part of the grading will reflect collegiality and
      professional attitude, both of which are necessary in these situations.


      The cost

      Cost of participating in the field school is regular tuition ($91.81 per
      credit hour as of May 01, 2002 for Canadian citizens and permanent
      residents) and fees. In addition, there will be a $600/person charge for
      food and transportation from Prince George to and from the field. Tents
      and cooking infrastructure will be provided, but participants will have
      to bring their own sleeping bags. Other items such as required textbooks
      and personal spending money are not included in the above cost. A list
      of recommended items will be provided in the near future.


      Pre-requisites

      There are no formal pre-requisites for this field school. As a minimum,
      applicants must have taken at least one archaeology course and depending
      on the number of applications, priority may be given to students:

      1) with senior level courses in archaeological lab methods and
      archaeological theory
      2) that have taken Introductory Archaeology and/or Archaeology of the
      Pacific Northwest or the course equivalents at other institutions

      However all interested students are encouraged to apply.


      Application and deadline

      For an application form or for further information, please contact Farid
      Rahemtulla (farid@...). There is a rolling deadline for
      applications; we will stop accepting applications when all the positions
      are filled.
