Field Crews

Each summer, undergraduate students from a variety of institutions volunteer on the Gorge Project, receiving free training in archaeological methods in exchange for their labor in the field. Many return for multiple field seasons and develop research interests that evolve into senior theses. Graduate students regularly join the project as well, serving as crew chiefs.
