Boyd Archaeological Field School

The Boyd Archaeological Field School

Over a three week period, students develop and master interdisciplinary knowledge and skills through the exploration of Aboriginal and Euro-Canadian histories. Also, apart from the recommended literature, you can also involve secondary sources, or (web)libraries. The course includes lectures and hands-on work at an archaeological site under the instruction of certified teachers and archaeologists. The Boyd Archaeological Field School, recipient of the 2005 Peggy Armstrong Public Archaeology Award, is entering its 33rd year of operation under the sponsorship of the Continuing Education Department of the York Region Board of Education with assistance from a number of partners.

This summer course includes accommodation for a range of abilities and needs. Students will earn a Grade 12 University Prep Credit in Interdisciplinary Studies (IDC4U).

The course instructors include Ontario teachers, licensed archaeologists, Aboriginal educators and respected professionals in a variety of specialties.
