This is a sample syllabus for Anthropology 220: Archaeological Field Methods, conducted during the Summer 2017 term at Parkland College. The course provides students with hands-on experiences with real skills employed by professional archaeologists. Student projects were conducted at Allerton Park in Monticello, Illinois, and focused on the historical Robert Allerton period of the site (early 20th century). A culminating activity shifted to prehistoric culture with an on-site dig.
