Reposted from the ARF website: The 2022 ARF Field School application is now open!
The UC Berkeley Archaeological Research Facility (ARF) is offering a local, commuter field school from July 5 – August 12, 2022. The ARF Field School is a new project that provides a local archaeological field school for students residing in the Bay Area who are interested in pursuing archaeological careers and therefore need archaeological field training, but who have financial restrictions, family commitments, or other restrictions that prevent them from traveling to a field school outside of the SF Bay Area. Participants must be current upper-division undergraduates from any Bay Area college or university. Apply here (deadline is April 1)!
The ARF Field School is a six-week program (July 5 – August 12, 2022) that requires full-time participation, Monday – Friday from 9am – 5pm. The program will take place at the Archaeological Research Facility (ARF, on the UC Berkeley campus) and at our field site, the Peralta Hacienda Historical Park (near the Fruitvale BART station). The program will provide participants with training in archaeological equipment, survey, excavation, and analysis of archaeological artifacts and ecofacts. Approximately half the time will be spent in lectures and laboratory work and half at the field site.
Participants will receive a stipend of $3000 for the six weeks and the program will pay for two units of UC Berkeley course credit (Note: participants may opt for more credits at their own expense). Lunch will be provided daily but participants are expected to arrange their own transportation daily (both to UC Berkeley and the field site). Parking at UC Berkeley is challenging, so public transportation is encouraged. The program is open to upper division undergraduate students from any institution within commuting distance to UC Berkeley.
APPLICATIONS ARE DUE by 11:59 p.m. on APRIL 1, 2022
