Archaeology field school set for Holderness this summer

HOLDERNESS — An archaeology field school will study an approximately 4,000-year-old Native American site near Squam Lake in Holderness this coming June and July.

One of the main objectives of the field school is to determine when Native Americans may have lived at the site and how they may have used it.

Coordinated through the Division of Historical Resources' New Hampshire State Conservation and Rescue Archaeology Program (SCRAP), the field school will conform to archaeology standards set by the National Park Service. State Archaeologist Dr. Richard Boisvert will direct all fieldwork and instruction.

Volunteer participants and those seeking graduate or undergraduate credit through Plymouth State University may register for any of the three two-week sessions: June 22-July 3, July 6-July 17 and July 20-July 31. Fieldwork will take place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays.

Field school participants will learn fundamental recovery and documentation techniques as well as basic artifact identification and field laboratory methods. Hands-on instruction in the field, background readings, and evening lectures by various affiliated scholars are all part of the experience.

Volunteers will receive the same instruction as credit students. There is no fee to participate as a volunteer, however, a $40 donation to defray the cost of supplies and instructional materials is suggested.

Advance registration is required. For more information and to register, visit http://www.nh.gov/nhdhr/SCRAP.htm and click on "Upcoming Events & Opportunities," then "SCRAP Field School 2015" or contact the N.H. Division of Historical Resources at 603-271-6433.
