Each summer, generally in August, the State Archaeologist leads an intensive field school covering the governmental, legal, and cultural aspects of archaeology, as well as proper archaeological field techniques and data management. Participants do not need to be members of FOSA.

The course lasts for 5 days, and generally runs from 9:00 AM thru 3:00 PM.

Participants of this program have the opportunity to participate in an authentic dig at an archaeological site as one of the official team of investigators under the Office of State Archaeology.

Participation is open to the members of the public. Advance registration is required.
