Visitors are welcome to the lab, however, due to the fact that the lab is a very active scientific research facility, we require that visitors make an appointment prior to their visit. This is a great opportunity to see firsthand how archaeology is done and to view some of our collections up close. Please consult the document at right for more information on visiting the City Archaeology Lab.
The City Archaeologist welcomes and encourages school groups to visit the lab. We will give your school group or group of visitors a brief presentation in our dedicated teaching room before moving on to a tour of the Laboratory and Curation Facility. This is a hands-on learning experience and we are actively developing programs for various age groups. Please contact City Archaeologist Joe Bagley directly to discuss a school or group visit.
Volunteers are the backbone of the City Archaeology Program. This is the most open form of involvement and we welcome volunteers of all ages. Volunteers can help for a day or can develop a regular schedule. Please consult the document at right for more information on volunteering.
Each semester and during the summer, the City Archaeology Program offers internship positions. These are meant to give high school and college students an incredible opportunity to work directly with the City Archaeologist. Internships are limited. Projects can include analyzing an archaeological collection, working on a collections management issue in the Curation Facility, developing lesson plans, and even participating in an archaeological dig, if one is available. Interns are expected to be available 3-5 full days a week. Internships will be individually modified to each intern based on their interests and availability. Please consult the document at right for more information on internships.
We welcome researchers, especially graduate students looking for Master's thesis or PhD topics. There are plenty of opportunities in a variety of research areas. Please contact City Archaeologist Joe Bagley directly to discuss possible topics and schedule a visit to the lab. For professional researchers, including CRM archaeologists and other professionals (writers, professors, etc.), please send correspondence directly to the City Archaeologist. All researchers should consult the document at right for requirements and further information.
