Free Distance Learning Program in Archaeology
Other than the programs of the University of Leicester, archaeology is distinctly lacking in the availability of related distance learning coursework and degrees. Here is an oasis in the desert: The U.S. National Park Service offers impressively well structured distance learning courses in archaeology and historic preservation. There are four related courses that you may want to check out: Managing Archaeological Collections, Archaeology for Interpreters, Interpretation for Archaeologists, and Study Tour of Archaeological Interpretation. All of these courses provide a firm basic foundation in the study of archaeology. Another good thing about this program -- it is FREE. That's a bargain. See the website for more information.
