Newsstory006Are you a currently enrolled student at a Historically Black College or University (HBCU) interested in archaeology? Consider applying for a paid internship in St Croix, US Virgin Islands, or Milot, Haiti this summer.  

From the application site:  

“In recent decades there has been a surge in archaeological research related to the African diaspora. What initially began as plantation archaeology and household archaeology to answer questions of African retention and identity, has now developed into an expansive sub-field that draws from collaborations with biological and cultural anthropologists. Similarly, methodological and theoretical considerations within the field of archaeology and inversely added new insights in the field of Africana Studies. 

The UC-HBCU Internship in African Diaspora Archaeology is a five-week summer training internship program designed for undergraduate students to gain field experience in archaeological methods. Students will participate in excavations at on of two on-going archaeological sites of key importance to the African Diaspora: 1) Sans-Souci, the royal palace of Henry Christophe located in Milot, Haiti, or 2) the Estate Little Princess, a former Danish plantation in St. Croix, USVI. Students will spend one week in residence at UC Santa Cruz, California and another four weeks excavating at their respective sites. At UCSC, students will receive one week of intensive training in artifact analysis and digital archaeological methods from multiple specialist on campus. The internship is intended to teach students basic excavation, survey and analysis methods while also exposing them to potential graduate level research in archaeology and related disciplines.”
