We are pleased to announce openings in the Pimu Catalina Island Archaeology Field School from June 22, 2008 to July 25, 2008. Just off the coast of Los Angeles, students will use cutting edge scientific tools in a collaborative research project with Tongva/Gabrielino tribal members, the Santa Catalina Island Conservancy and the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at UCLA.
The field school provides students with practical working knowledge of survey, excavation, lab and cataloging methods while immersing them in the 9,000 years of cultural history of the Tongva/Gabrielino nation. Students will also learn about how to apply cultural resource laws to public sector archaeological work.
Scholarships are available
