The field school meets requirements for the ASV/DHR/COVA Certification Program for excavation. Headquarters for the field school will be Kirwan Hall located ca. 5.5 miles from Eastville on the Chesapeake Bay side. Several motels are found in the environs of nearby Exmore. In addition, arrangements have been made for camping at Kirwan. Participants are responsible for lodging and meals. Lunch will not be provided at the site. Portajohns with washstands will be available at Kirwan and the excavation site. The field school timing in early spring will avoid the influx of insects and the hot humid weather. Work will begin at 8:30 am and shut down by 4:30 pm. Excavation may also be prone to the vagaries of the weather.
Application Due Date: April 1, 2014. Contact Jolene Smith at the DHR for more information and an application.
