Archaeology Field School

The Field School will be excavating several 18th century military sites around Fort Edward and will once again be headquartered at the Rogers Island Visitors Center. Artifacts from the current digs can be seen as they are processed in the Center's laboratory as well as artifacts discovered from prior excavations in Fort Edward. Archaeologists conduct weekday noon lectures in the Center's gallery throughout the dig.

SUNY Adirondack's archaeology field school will run July 9 - Aug 17 in Ft. Edward.
