Course Info: 4 credits of ANTH X
Project Directors: GBL Research Scientist - Elizabeth Watts Malouchos, GBL Director - April Sievert, Wylie House Museum Director - Carey Beam, and GBL Curator - Melody Pope
Project Description: Join the Glenn A. Black Laboratory of Archaeology and the Wylie House Museum for a special collaborative project investigating our local Hoosier cultural heritage as part of IU’s Bicentennial celebration. Wylie House Museum is the 1835 house of IU’s first president Andrew Wylie and is IU’s oldest property. During the four week field school, students will learn archaeological field methods (including remote sensing and GIS based technologies) while searching for two buried garden facilities dating to 1859. If you are interested in archaeology, museum studies, history, public engagement, or need to stay local this summer, this program will be a great fit for you! We plan to offer a companion Laboratory Methods in Archaeology course in Fall 2018 utilizing artifact collections from Wylie House; look for this in the Fall Schedule of Classes!
