UNB Bioarchaeology Field School 2018

Applications are now being accepted for the 2018 field season of the UNB Bioarchaeology Field School at the Fortress of Louisbourg in Cape Breton, Canada. Efforts to manage coastal erosion at Louisbourg has prompted this long-term rescue excavation and analysis of these burials. This unique program will offer students a multi-component, hands-on bioarchaeological field experience including excavation methods and techniques, field data recording, and ethical handling practices. Additionally, students will be engaged in the technical analyses of these skeletal remains through laboratory cataloguing, analysis, curation, and storage. While working at Louisbourg students will have opportunities to explore the Fortress, learn more about the history of 18th century Atlantic Canada, and share their experiences and research with the local community.
