In 2013, the University of Oregon Archaeological Field School will be at Rimrock Draw Rockshelter. Rimrock Draw is a stemmed point site near Riley, Oregon. This site has already produced some exciting finds and by attending the 2013 field school you can be a part of this important investigation.
This summer's field school will continue excavations at Rimrock Draw Rockshelter that began in September 2011 and continued through the 2012 field season. A paleobotany field school will also run for three weeks and offer four credits of instruction. As well, there will be two days devoted to a Lithic Technology workshop.
The abundance of cultural material makes Rimrock Draw Rockshelter an exciting new site with great potential for multiple lines of research and a wealth of learning opportunities.
