Archaeology Summer Camp for Adults
July 22–26, 2013
Registration is full. Now wait-listing.
Enjoy indoor, summer archaeology as part of an ASM research team! Museum researchers and scholars are your teachers. An air-conditioned laboratory is your setting. All work is conducted within the museum. There is no field work included in this program. No prior experience necessary.
Arizona State Museum is the state’s official repository for all archaeological materials uncovered on state lands. With ever-expanding urban development, thousands of objects are brought in everyday. But before an object becomes part of ASM’s world-renowned collections, it first gets processed in the museum’s repository - the largest and busiest non-federal facility in the country. Through hands-on work, you will learn how objects are in-processed, accessioned, recorded, packaged, and stored. Lectures and tours round out your week-long experience.
Heres what some past campers have to say about their experience:
$300 museum members ($150 tax-deductible)
Limited group size (12 persons) ensures meaningful interaction and conversation.
Reserve your spot today!
