The development of an interdisciplinary archaeological curriculum incorporating skills and perspectives from humanities and the sciences.

This proposal seeks to create an interdisciplinary archaeological curriculum at Roanoke College that will focus on the skillsets needed for understanding and working with the archaeological past. During a planning year, we will create a curriculum that explores the archaeological intersections in the disciplines of Art History, History, Anthropology, Biology, Computer Science, Environmental Studies, and Statistics; we expect to create a minor or certificate in Archaeology. A committee of nine faculty members from six different disciplines will work together on lectures and exercises for archaeology classes, create new syllabi or restructure old ones, and meet with outside consultants. A key element of our work will be to design a field school using our on-campus archaeological site, Monterey House, to train students in excavation and analysis. We plan to place successful exercises and, once implemented, our curriculum online for other colleges and universities to use as a model.
