The field school will be held June 1-28. Students will receive training in archeological excavation techniques; learn about the early history of European settlers, Native Americans and enslaved Africans in the southeastern U.S.; and explore the unique historical and cultural landscape of Charleston.

The cost is $3,499, which includes 6 credits of Salve Regina tuition, ground transportation as needed, accommodations at the College of Charleston, four group meals and official excursions and entrance fees.
