Every year, the project accepts up to 10 undergraduate students from The Trico-Community (Bryn Mawr College, Haverford College and Swarthmore College) as students on a geo-archeological fieldschool that runs on all three active projects. The fieldschool runs during the winter break from early December until late January. During the four weeks of the fieldschool students are trained in archeological excavation, recording, site and regional survey, geophysical prospection, artifact recording and GIS database management. Students can enroll at Bryn Mawr College in a Unit of Supervised Work to obtain course credit for the fieldschool. In addition to on-site training, fieldschool students visit regional museums and archaeological and geological sites of interest. Click here to see photos:
