Program Description:
The major objective of this field school is to prepare students for a career in cultural resource management (CRM) while conducting a typical small-scale CRM inventory and evaluation project. The field school will take place on the Coconino National Forest near Flagstaff, Arizona. The area has been home to people for many millennia and has a rich archaeological record that extends from the Paleoindian period (13,000-9,000 BCE) to the Historic period. The region is best known, however, as the homeland of the Northern Sinagua. This prehistoric tradition, centered in the Flagstaff area, was originally defined by Dr. Harold S. Colton of the Museum of Northern Arizona as the Sinagua culture, a cultural entity derived from Mogollon roots and influenced by interaction with other surrounding cultures. Our research goals are to identify and evaluate any prehistoric and historic period resources that can contribute important information regarding past land use and settlement patterns in this area. We will visit major Sinagua sites that have been significant in the development of the Sinagua concept and its major research issues, as well as weekend field trips to nearby National Parks and Monuments containing other well-known Sinagua sites in the region.
This field school will be taught by staff from Statistical Research, Inc. (SRI), one of the foremost CRM firms in the world. It is a partnership between the IFR, SRI and the Coconino National Forest.
