The Cape Field School in South Africa
If you are a student of anthropology or archaeology and you are looking for an exciting and meaningful field school to enrich your skills and education, the Cape Field School of South Africa may be right for you. In three-month sessions twice a year, Professor Christopher Henshilwood leads field schools that take students to the coastal caves of the De Hoop Nature Reserve, where archaeological excavation and research is being conducted on Middle- and Late-Stone Age human deposits that will shed light on the lifeways of early humans that lived up to 300,000 years ago. The sessions run from February 1, 2006 -- May 1, 2006 and then again beginning in September. The deadline for application for the first session is October 1, 2005, so there is plenty of time to think about it and submit your paperwork.
