In 2016, the University of Oregon Archaeological Field School will be at Connley Caves. The Connley Caves site is composed of 8 caves and rockshelters located in the Connley Hills of the Fort Rock basin some 10 miles south of the town of Fort Rock. These caves were first professionally investigated by Stephen Bedwell who radiocarbon dated charcoal in a Western Stemmed cultural component to as much as 11,200 14C BP (13,000 calibrated years ago).

The field school is now accepting enrollment applications for the Summer 2016 field session. The Archaeological Field School runs from June 20 to July 29, 2016.

This program is certified by the Register of Professional Archaeologists (RPA). RPA is the standard-bearer for appropriate archaeological field, laboratory, and reporting conduct.
