Handling history with care
British Columbia's rich history can be traced back 12,000 years through oral tradition and archaeological sites. Over 90% of the archaeology work done in British Columbia is completed by contract archaeologists in compliance with provincial heritage legislation. If you're interested in working as a crew member on these field projects or you're a First Nations community member interested in participating in cultural resource management within your traditional territories, this intensive program will teach you the applied skills required.
