The field school welcomes anyone who is a college-level student. Non-UC Davis students are welcome; the only prerequisite is an introductory archaeology course, but students will benefit from previous coursework in California and Great Basin archaeology/ethnography and archaeological methods and theory. UC Davis students are required to enroll in a Field Methods course (ANT-191-002, CRN 91796) in Spring 2017

This year, we are requesting that you include a C.V. or resume and one letter of recommendation with your application. The letter should come from an instructor, TA, or grad student who can evaluate you based on one-on-one interaction. Letters from an employer/supervisor will also be accepted.
