Archaeology Lab Program

New in 2018: Two Sessions!
July 29–August 4
September 30–October 6

For every day an archaeologist spends in the field, at least four days are required in the laboratory. During a typical field season, thousands of artifacts and samples come into Crow Canyon's lab. The story of the past begins to come together only when these artifacts and samples are carefully processed and studied.

In our lab program, you can help us analyze artifacts from recent excavations at sites that date from the Basketmaker III through Pueblo III periods (A.D. 500–1280).
