The Archaeological Field School is an exciting opportunity to earn two high school credits this summer while getting real archaeological skills.

Students live in dormitories at Claremont Field Centre, north of Ajax, and excavate the nearby Sebastien site a 14th century village ancestral to the Huron-Wendat nation.  In addition to fieldwork, there are visits from Indigenous speakers, lectures by leading professionals, seminars, and hands-on workshops in ancient technologies such as flint-knapping (stone-tool making), firestarting kits, cordage, fishtraps and other re-creations.  Evaluation is based on fieldwork, written assignments, seminars, workshops and a final exam.


The course, open to students who have completed Grade10, is offered as an Interdisciplinary Studies, Grade 12 University Prep or Open credit (IDC4U/O), and a Co-op Credit, granted by Durham Continuing Education (Durham District School Board)
