This two course sequence will introduce students to the methods of field archaeology through hands-on experience, excavating at the crash site of an American World War II aircraft located in the southern Austrian state of Carinthia. The course is designed to give students hands-on experience in all aspects of archaeological field work, including site identification, survey, and unit excavation. Students will learn proper hand excavation techniques, characterization of soils, basic artifact identifications, and mapping techniques, and they will manage recovered materials as forensic evidence for the identification of human remains. Students will develop these skills as part of a diverse and efficient archaeological team, working in a unique and exciting international environment.
