Summer High School Credit in Archaeology

Boyd Archaeological Field School’s 2017 session (40th season!) – an exciting opportunity for students to earn a high school credit in two weeks while getting real archaeological skills. 

The Field School was founded in 1975, and has provided hundreds of students with the foundations of archaeological practice.  Many have gone on to post-secondary studies and careers in the field.

The course, open to students who have completed Grade 10, is offered as an Interdisciplinary Studies, Grade 12 University Prep credit (IDC4U).  The program is run by Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) in a partnership with the York Region District School Board.

Students live in dormitories at Claremont Field Centre, north of Ajax, and excavate the nearby Sebastien site a 14th century village ancestral to the Huron-Wendat nation.  In addition to fieldwork, there are visits from Indigenous speakers, lectures by leading professionals, seminars, and hands-on workshops in ancient technologies such as flint-knapping (stone-tool making), firestarting kits, cordage, fishtraps and other re-creations.  Evaluation is based on fieldwork, written assignments, seminars, workshops and a final exam.

This summer’s course is takes place July 14th to 30th

Tuition is $2395 ($2695 for non-residents of Ontario).
