Archaeology Experience: Summer 2023

Archaeology Experience: Summer 2023

We at Earthlings Conservancy are excited to be partnering with archaeologists from the iDigNauvoo archaeology project and Western Illinois University (WIU) to offer a hands-on Archaeology Experience in Nauvoo, Illinois. This program will run weekdays from May 16th through June 23rd, 2023.

We aim to keep our experiences as affordable as possible. Registration costs include expense compensation for instructional staff, insurance, and project materials.

Fees for the 2023 Archaeology Experience will be:

$150 per week ( 3 or more days in a week )
$50 for individual days ( 1 or 2 days in a week )

If you can’t commute from home to the site each day, free shared housing will be available for the first dozen people who submit a paid registration for the full six weeks. Others will be accommodated as space allows. An optional meals package is also available for $15 per day which includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

If desired, Directed Research or Internship credits may be arranged through the WIU Anthropology program (separate WIU registration and tuition would apply).

Each participant under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a registered adult participant (aged 18+).
