2023 Hands-On Adult Archaeology Camp
We hope you will join us next year in discovering the prehistory of the Tampa Bay region. Registration is now open.
Each camp offered is for one week: February 20-24, 2023 and February 27 - March 3, 2023.
Experience hands-on archaeology at Weedon Island Preserve, one of Florida's preeminent archaeological sites. Work with professional archaeologists and researchers to uncover clues about the culture and lifeways of the early people who inhabited the Tampa Bay region.
Camp participants will assist AWIARE researchers in excavation, recording data, screening sediment, and collecting artifacts, bone and samples. As well, as helping to analyze artifacts and process finding in the lab.
Groups will be limited to 8 participants for 5 days. Participants will rotate between field work and lab analysis.
Expedition cost: $495 per week, includes lunch at the AWIARE Research Station.
Introductory lectures will be given by archaeologists, Dr. Robert Austin and Dr. John Arthur. Day 5 will include field trips to local archaeology sites.
Please note: This camp is an active participants level with walks to the site of almost 1 mile over some uneven terrain.
