News Brief Graphic

The Daniel Boone National Forest will host a field school for Eastern Kentucky University archaeology students from June 1-18 in Sandgap, Kentucky.

Students will get the chance to gain practical experience, learning hands-on knowledge of archaeological methods as they excavate, record and catalogue a rock shelter in the London Ranger District. The students' work and use their findings on the site to help assist the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service. The field school will help take steps forward in documenting the remains of the rock shelter, which has been looted several times since the 1980s.

If you have any questions regarding the field school, please contact Mary O’Malley at mary.o’malley@usda.gov.
