Western Michigan University’s 41st annual archaeological field school will be held at the site of historic Fort St. Joseph in Niles, Michigan. Our program was recently certified by the Register of Professional Archaeologists and commended for our community outreach and education efforts that include a summer camp program, public lecture series, an open house, and other community activities. In addition to learning standard archaeological techniques, previous students who have participated have gained deeper insights into the history of the fur trade, the role of the site in forging a community identity among the people of Niles, and the importance of working collectively in a community service learning project.
