Field School in Historical Archaeology: Amache Project

The DU Amache Project

A WWII era Japanese American internment camp site in Granada, Colorado

Principal Faculty: Professor Bonnie Clark
Institution: University of Denver
Dates: June 21 - July 19, 2010

The University of Denver is accepting students for a 2010 summer field school in historical archaeology and museum studies at Amache, a WWII era Japanese American internment camp site in Granada, Colorado. Students interested in community-engaged research, in the archaeology of historic landscapes, in Asian American archaeology, or the relationship between archaeology and museums, are particularly encouraged to apply!

The field school will run from June 21 through July 19, 2010 and is offered for four credit hours to both undergraduate and graduate students. This field school provides the unique opportunity for students to work directly with individuals who once lived at the site where they will be conducting archaeological research.
