Strawbery Banke 2010 Archaeology Field School
Search for the secrets of the past by participating in a real archaeological excavation! Join Strawbery Banke's Archaeology Department as we excavate the grounds of the 1762 Chase House site, gathering information about its former kitchen ell, barn and, of particular interest, the privy. Students in the Archaeology Field School work alongside professional archaeologists, preservationists, curators, and historians, exploring the site with volunteers and students of all ages. Learn field approved excavation techniques and be part of a team, unearthing information about four centuries of neighborhood life at this historic 10-acre site in the heart of Portsmouth, NH..
This two-week, intensive experience includes fieldwork, lab work, object handling and identification, tours, activities, and instruction. The Archaeological Field School is a valuable opportunity for career exploration as well as a fun outdoor learning experience.
