2023 OSU ARCHAEOLOGY FIELD SCHOOL AT THE DEVILS KITCHEN SITE, OREGON COAST

JOIN OUR EXPEDITION FROM JULY 24-SEPT 8, 2023

Learn modern archaeological excavation methods as we continue our study of the Devils Kitchen site, located on Oregon’s southern coast near the town of Bandon. Overlooking the majestic Pacific Ocean, this site holds a fascinating record of the past 13,000 years. Our expedition will seek to learn how long people lived at the site, what their past lives were like, and how their local coastal environments changed over time. As a part of this course, students will also learn geoarchaeology field methods and archaeology laboratory procedures in a stunning outdoor classroom setting. Students and staff will camp at Bullards Beach State Park, which is a short walk from beautiful beach and estuary areas.

Students register for ANTH 438 (12 credits) or ANTH 538 (9 credits). This course has no academic prerequisites, and all OSU and non-OSU students can apply. Summer 2022 tuition and fee costs for ANTH 438 (12 credits) were $3134 and $4760 for ANTH 538 (9 credits) and may be a bit higher in 2023.
