Ole Miss Archaeological Field School

The Department of Sociology and Anthropology will offer its summer field school in archaeology at the former location of a Native American settlement near Starkville, Mississippi. The site possibly was occupied during the 1500s or 1600s, a time when Europeans and Native Americans were making first contact in the region. One of the goals of our fieldwork will be to determine precisely when the site was occupied so that we can begin to explore and better understand this time of early contact in Mississippi.
