2107 NH SCRAP Paleoindian Site Exploration in Jefferson, New Hampshire

The New Hampshire State Conservation and Rescue Archaeology Program (SCRAP) field school for 2017 will take place at the Jefferson VI Paleoindian Site, a Paleoindian caribou hunting and processing encampment overlooking the Israel River in Jefferson, NH.
The field school is structured in three sessions, each two weeks long (June 26 – July 7, July 9 –July 21 and July 23 –August 4). Fieldwork will take place daily on weekdays from 8 AM to 4 PM, with occasional evening lectures.
A field camp will be established in Randolph, NH where participants may reside during the field
school. Those electing to use the field camp will need to provide their own tents and camping gear. An indoor kitchen with necessary supplies will be available for preparation of meals.
All fieldwork and instruction will be directed by Dr. Richard Boisvert, New Hampshire State Archaeologist, and the field school will conform to standards for archaeology set by the National Park Service.
