Barnard's 2022 Archaeology Field Program
The 2022 Field Season
An interest in the past and its relevance to the present is the only prerequisite. No prior experience in archaeology or anthropology is necessary, but preference is given to Archaeology majors at Barnard College and Columbia University, as well as to Indigenous and Latinx students, regardless of their majors.
- Crew members are responsible for covering their airfare to and from Albuquerque International Airport.
- Crew members are also responsible for purchasing in advance and bringing into the field their own hiking boots, sleeping bag, pillow, day pack, water bottles, and any other personal gear.
- All basic food and lodging expenses during the field season will be covered by the project. During free days, however, crew members will have the opportunity to undertake local travel and purchase special meals on their own dime. (Remaining at the project house and dining without charge is always an option.)
To cover travel expenses to/from New Mexico, Barnard and Columbia students may apply for the following merit-based grants and fellowships to help cover the costs of participation:
