Glendale Community College is offering an undergraduate
field school this summer at the Mitchell Springs site
near Cortez, CO. It will be run by myself (Linda Smith)
and Don Dove. The purpose of the  school is to introduce
students to the techniques and ethics of archaeological
excavation, as well as give a short introduction to the
Anasazi/ancestral Pueblo lifestyle. Students do not have
to be anthropology majors to enroll.

There are three sessions:
May 17-28, May 31-June 11, or June 14-25.

The cost is $233 for residents of Maricopa County, and
$333 for non-residents (the county subsidizes tuition).
I believe we have an intergovernmental agreement so that
NAU and UA students pay the resident tuition. We provide
equipment and supplies, the students provide their own
food, lodging, and transportation (that's why we're so

Students must be high school graduates or over the age
of 17. Although we have had some graduate students, the
course is really for lower division undergraduates, or
adults who have always wanted to "do" archaeology under

While each session is short in number of days, the days
are long: 10 hours each.  About two hours are spent in
lecture, the remaining eight in excavation.  We also
visit Mesa Verde and usually several other sites. The
class is an "S2" science lab for any of the Maricopa
Community Colleges as well as for ASU. It is NOT a
science lab for UA or NAU, but transfers as departmental
elective credit.

The first session is almost full, but the other two have
room. Persons wishing to enroll should call Mary Blackwell
at (602)435-3302.  For more information, please send your
U.S.Mail address to
