2018 Exploring Globalization through Archaeology
The REU Site is an international 8-week summer program on the Caribbean island of Sint Eustatius (Statia – a special municipality within The Netherlands) designed for students to acquire research skills in the fields of anthropological and forensic archaeology, and to prepare them for graduate study or employment following graduation. Students will be involved in the scientific study, analysis, and interpretation of landscapes, architecture, material culture, and human skeletal biology leading to a broader understanding of the range of human responses to globalization. In 2018, students will have the option of focusing on either the archaeological investigations of two forts or the forensic archaeological recovery and analysis of a nearby cemetery.
Students will spend approximately 4 weeks (June 11-July 3) on Statia conducting data collection (field work) and 4 weeks (July 9-August 3) on the Texas State University campus in San Marcos conducting laboratory analysis, report preparation, and development of a poster to be presented at an on-campus event. On Statia students will stay in dormitory-style housing and meals will be provided. At Texas State, students will stay in on-campus dormitories and have access to on-campus meal options.

The Archaeology Field School and Internship at James Madison’s Montpelier
The Montpelier Archaeology Field School recently came in 2nd place in the SHA Diversity Field School Competition, and makes a concerted effort to encourage the participation of African American students in our program through the field school and internship program.
The Field School runs from May 29-June 29, 2018, and focuses on the grounds of James Madison’s Montpelier Plantation, with a particular focus on the lives of the African Americans who were enslaved on the property. Students can take the field school for credit through James Madison University or SUNY-Plattsburgh with an additional $400 fee to Montpelier, or enroll for no-credit for $650 Montpelier Fee, which includes housing and equipment. African American students can apply for the field school scholarship, which waives the Montpelier related fee - this means students and recent graduates can attend the field school for no cost.
Recent graduates who take the archaeology field school can also apply for the Montpelier Archaeology Internship Program. This program accepts five recent graduates to work as part of the Montpelier staff. Participants are paid and receive full benefits, including health insurance, sick, and vacation time. Housing is also included. The internship lasts from the end of field school until April 30, 2019, and interns receive training in field and lab methods, public archaeology, working with descendant communities, and gain professional experience working in archaeology and at a museum. They also work on a research project, presenting at the Mid Atlantic Archaeological Conference. This is an excellent stepping stone for young archaeologists looking to break into the archaeological discipline: many of our former interns are working professionally in the field or attending graduate school!
