Digging for human stories

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 are interested in archaeology in BC or if you are an Indigenous member working with heritage in your communities, this intensive program will teach you respectful applied skills.

What you'll learn

In the Archaeology Field Assistant program you will learn a diverse set of skills, such as the use of appropriate technology to identify and efficiently record archaeological features and sites, use respectful practices, and follow Indigenous cultural protocols.

You'll also be introduced to provincial heritage legislation and Indigenous perspectives of archaeology.
