Between May 19 and June 27, 2008, the University of Oklahoma Department of Anthropology will offer ANTH 3930 Fieldwork in Anthropology, taught by Dr. Patrick Livingood. This course, which will provide students with 6 credit hours, is open to undergraduate students, and will provide students with basic instruction in the techniques of archaeological excavation, mapping, and remote sensing.

The field school will take place at a Caddoan site in eastern Oklahoma that dates between AD 1100 and 1500. Currently, several sites are being considered as field school locations. Students will live in a field house/camp and spend five days a week working in the field. Students who are interested in the field school are encouraged to fill out a short application. Enrollment is open to all students from accredited undergraduate institutions, but in the unlikely event that applications exceed the number of slots, OU students will receive priority in admissions.
