ARCL 306 Summer Field School

The Musqueam-UBC Archaeological Field School (ARCL 306) has been cancelled for this year in light of COVID-19.


The Musqueam Indian Band and UBCs Department of Anthropology are pleased to announce the continuation of the joint field instruction and research project developed in 2007 and conducted with the approval of Musqueam Chief and Council. The project includes the summer 2020 field school course, ARCL 306 (Summer Field Training in Archaeology, 6 credits).

The course will be open to a limited number of students (maximum 20). It will provide students with archaeological experience and instruction while working in consultation with First Nation archaeologists, officials, elders, and community members. The program will also provide graduates with an introduction to the technical skills and training required for a career in consulting archaeology, including a Provincially-recognized certification in Resource Inventory Standards Committee (RISC) training for archaeological crew members.

Term Dates: May 11 – June 18, 2020
