Show Summary Details


Campus archaeology has a powerful pedagogical role to play in archaeological education and has developed a keen research interest in themes that characterize the social, political, and intellectual history of the campus. In the process, undergraduate and graduate students at the university have become involved in different aspects of campus archaeology. This chapter examines three experiences of campus archaeology in the University of California, Berkeley. In addition to research experience encapsulated within course offerings and formal archaeological field schools, they have been able to work with a preexisting university program, the Undergraduate Research Apprenticeship Program (URAP), in order to offer students research experience in campus archaeology. The May and Warren Cheney House's location on campus has also allowed the project and site to function as a sort of learning laboratory. In addition, various graduate and undergraduate student projects have emerged from the overall excavation and research project.
