New Archaeology Field School Opportunity!
Monday, October 19-Thursday, October 22, 2015
9:00 am to 3:00 pm, daily
Open to the public
You can participate in archaeological excavations at the Berry site, the location of Fort San Juan, the earliest European settlement in the interior of the United States (1567-1568.)
The Exploring Joara Foundation is teaming with Warren Wilson College to offer a new field school opportunity for those who want to discover the thrill of archaeology but are unable to commit to the time and expense of the traditional June field school.
EJF will now offer a four-day field experience at the Berry site for members of the public 16 years of age and older. No experience is necessary and participants may enroll for any of the scheduled dates.
The field school will be led by staff and volunteers from the Exploring Joara Foundation and Warren Wilson College.
Cost is $35.00 per day ($25.00 for current EJF members)
Registration and more information is available HERE or contact the Exploring Joara Foundation at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (828) 439-2463.
The Burning of Fort San Juan
“It is a story of great scholarship, archaeology at its
best, hot dirty physical work and luck.”
