Undergraduate Fieldwork in Archaeology

A number of research opportunities in archaeology both within Maryland and abroad, are provided to students from HCC and neighboring colleges and universities. These research projects are frequently conducted in collaboration with other universities and/or organizations. Recently, HCC strengthened its ability to provide research opportunities in archaeology by purchasing a fluxgate gradiometer for student-led non-invasive surveys. A summary of these undergraduate research opportunities is provided on subsequent pages of this website.
