RPA 2019 Certified Field School Highlight: University of Calgary
University of Calgary is offering a field school on Maya Archaeology in Belize. The university International Programs website says: The Maya Archaeology in Belize Field Program represents an excellent opportunity for archaeology and anthropology students to develop or extend their field experience through practice in archaeological field techniques within a working archaeological site. Students will be integrated into the on-going research of the Stann Creek Regional Archaeology Project (SCRAP); a unique chance to meet and work alongside associated investigators while experiencing a Maya site before large-scale excavations and restoration have taken place. Along with instruction and practice in field procedures and techniques, this program will involve in-field lectures and field trips to Maya archaeological sites and other attractions in the region.
