Program Description:

The main focus of the Bicol Archaeological Project (BAP) (Philippines) is to understand indigenous responses to colonialism, including economic, landscape, and political shifts that occurred soon after conquest.  The field school provides training in archaeological field methods and bioarchaeological methodologies. The Bicol Region has a rich, but largely undocumented archaeological record that spans the Neolithic, Metal Age, Trade and Interaction with Asian traders, and Spanish colonial periods. The BAP aims to launch a region-wide archaeological program that will provide data to establish the region’s cultural chronology, which will be tied to the larger chronology in the region. Anthropological issues such as culture-contact, subsistence shifts, resource utilization, responses to colonialism, climate change, heritage conservation, and community engagement will also be pursued by the BAP. Although BAP primarily looks at the archaeology of colonialism, the deep archaeological deposit in the region provides a broader research opportunity that students can pursue.
