Archaeological Field Methods: Further Investigations at the Jefferson VI Paleoindian Site

Instructor: Dr. Richard A. Boisvert

Dates: June 25 – August 3

The 2012 NH State Conservation and Rescue Archaeology Program (SCRAP) summer field school will continue research at the Jefferson VI Paleoindian site. The investigations will consist of site testing with small block excavations and additional shovel test pit survey on nearby landforms. Participants in the field school will document the site with detailed excavations and place it in a context with other Paleoindian sites in the immediate vicinity and the broader region. They will also have an opportunity to assist with public outreach by presentations to the general public and site tours. Participants will learn fundamental recovery and documentation techniques as well as basic artifact identification and field laboratory procedures. Hands-on instruction in the field will be supplemented by background readings, evening lectures by various affiliated scholars, and field trips to nearby Paleoindian sites.
