Students at the Archaeological Field School on a dig in a cavern,The CSU, Chico Archaeological Field School offers students hands-on training in the latest archaeological field techniques. The 2019 field school will take you to two distinct regions: the Northern Sierra Nevada of California and the Little High Rock Canyon of Northwestern Nevada. The course is taught in two ten-day rotations with a four-day break in between.

The field school is led by CSU, Chico professors Dr. Matt O’Brien and Dr. Carly Whelan. Both directors have experience in academic and cultural resource management (CRM) archaeology, so you will gain valuable experience in both realms. Students will be enrolled in ANTH 380 or ANTH 480 through the CSU, Chico Regional & Continuing Education, and will earn 4 units for successful participation in the field school.
