Volunteer Archaeology at ASM
Homol'ovi Research Program
Volunteers studying sherds in the Homol’ovi Lab
The Homol’ovi Research Program under the direction of Dr. E. Charles Adams and Richard C. Lange is involved in archaeological excavation and survey of ancestral Pueblo groups living in the vicinity of the City of Winslow in northeastern Arizona. The research has produced millions of artifacts that are stored in the Homol’ovi Lab in the ASM South Building, Room 301. The lab provides student and non-student volunteers the opportunity to learn archaeological lab techniques under the supervision of Adams, Lange, or graduate students in the School of Anthropology. Students can also do independent study and honors projects using artifacts from the project. If you would like more information, contact Dr. Adams or Mr. Lange.
Borderlands Research Program
Borderlands Archaeology is the umbrella program for a variety of projects in southern Arizona and adjacent northwest Mexico. The major focus is on Hohokam studies in the Tucson area, including survey for site discovery and excavations at a platform mound center and terraced, hillside trincheras sites. This project regularly includes museum researchers, University of Arizona students, avocational archaeologists, and other volunteers.
There are volunteer opportunities to participate in excavations of Hohokam adobe compounds at a central site with a platform mound near Marana, north of Tucson. Volunteers may also take part in ongoing artifact analysis in the lab at the museum.
