Contisuyo Archeological Field School (Peru south coast - June 14 – July 26, 2020).
Learn basic techniques in artifact analysis and study human osteology with collections from the Wari site of Cerro Baúl and others dating to later periods (ca. 600-1500CE). The museum and archaeological sites are located in Moquegua, Peru, where a number of different groups interacted with each other over the course of several centuries including Wari, Tiwanaku, Chiribaya, and Inka. The goal of the analysis is to determine differences in daily life, ceramic and lithic technology, diet, health, and mortuary practices. You will participate in this exciting research.The program includes two courses: ATY 479—Analysis of Archaeological Data, which will consist of preliminary introduction to the analysis of ceramics, lithics, faunal remains, and textiles; and ATY 453—Human Osteology, which will introduce techniques associated with the analysis of human skeletal remains such as paleopathology. Both courses will prepare students for future employment by providing hands-on experiences with a number of different material types and familiarity with museum curation practices.

Colombia: El Congo (IFR) (Ecuador - June 2 – June 29, 2019)
The El Congo-Ciudad Antigua archaeological site is located on the western face of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountain range towards the upper section of the Rio Frio basin. The archaeological remains, which include a number of terrace structures, extend over more than 60 hectares, spreading down the slopes of narrow hillcrests from 900 to 600 meters elevation. Many of the remains are located within ProSierra’s El Congo research station and adjacent farms. The El Congo research station is an archaeological and biological conservation area owned by ProSierra since 1991, and the 2019 field season seeks to continue preliminary research that began in 2018.

Ecuador: Cochasquí-Mojanda (IFR) (Ecuador - July 15 - August 18, 2019)
Parque Arqueológico Cochasquí lies in the northern Ecuadorian highlands at an elevation of approximately 3,000 meters on the southern slope of the extinct Mojanda volcano. The site commands an impressive view of the Interandean Valley and some of its most majestic volcanoes. Cochasquí (ca. 950-1550 A.D.) is one of the most important archaeological sites in Ecuador. The people of Cochasquí built some of the largest pyramids in the Andes and famously resisted the Inka conquest for some years, yet surprisingly little is known about the site or its occupants. Nonetheless, the site occupies a revered status in the national narrative. Even today, Cochasquí serves as a symbol of Ecuadorian national legitimacy and power with newly elected officials symbolically granted the mantle of their office in a ceremony conducted atop one of the pyramids. But what changes led to development of a site like Cochasquí? Who were it occupants, how did they live, and how was their society structured? And what ultimately led to the site’s abandonment and disuse?

Peru: Corral Redondo (IFR) (Chorunga Valley, Peru - July 14-August 10,2019)
In January of 1943, workmen at the Chorunga Valley discovered extraordinary Wari and Inca objects at Corral Redondo. The finds included imperial Wari face-neck jars, dozens of spectacular Wari feathered textiles, silver Inca objects and high-end Inca ceramics, miniatures and textiles. The site was likely a huaca – a sacred Andean site. The nature of the recovered objects suggests that the site functioned as a capacocha, an important ritual location where high-end objects were part of elite ceremonies. This alone makes Corral Redondo an important site. The fact that such high-end objects were interred at the site over an extended period of time (AD 600-1550) suggests that Corral Redondo was remembered for centuries as a potent ceremonial location – an extremely rare occurrence in the Andes. This project will excavate the site and attempt to recover additional objects, understand its architecture and through ground survey, contextualize Corral Redondo is time and space. Students will also engage in artifact conservation at a local museum where finds from the site will be displayed as part of the community’s cultural heritage.

Ecuador: Buen Suceso (IFR) (Ecuador - June 22-July 26, 2019)
Join us on the coast of Ecuador as we excavate Buen Suceso, a Late Valdivia site dating to 2000 BC. The Valdivia culture (4400-1450 BC) is one the earliest ceramic traditions in the Americas and the first sedentary society in this region, initiating the widespread cultivation of maize and other crops. Buen Suceso is located at the base of the Chongon-Colonche hills in an incredible tropical forest environment filled with orchids, hummingbirds, leaf cutter ants, howler monkeys, and more! Our research seeks to understand the ways in which the people living at Buen Suceso constructed and maintained a community identity, and how this differed from other Valdivia communities. We will emphasize systematic excavation techniques and detail-oriented laboratory analyses within an overall theme of community-based archaeology in cooperation with the comuna of Dos Mangas, where we will be staying. By the end of the session, all should be able to excavate a unit and engage in comprehensive artifact analyses and will also have the opportunity to collaborate with the local community on heritage projects.

Archaeological and Community Cultural Heritage Engagement Project in Nivín, Casma, Ancash, Peru (Casma Valley - Season 1: June 2nd – June 29th Season 2: July 7th – August 3rd) Application Deadline: Monday, April 15, 2019
This archaeological field project aims to clarify the cultural affiliations of the groups that occupied the middle branch of the Casma Valley, from the Middle Horizon (A.D. 600 -1,000) to the Late Intermediate Period (A.D. 1,000 – 1,470). The project is located in the community Nivín in coastal Ancash, 23km east of the city of Casma. This valley has a complex, long-term occupation in the Peruvian coast, though specific detail of the period is lacking due to a lack of systematic research.

Advances in Archaeological Practice
is a peer-reviewed journal that seeks to share solutions in the broad practice of archaeology. Launched in 2013, the full-color digital journal is published four times per year. The journal publishes original articles that present creative solutions to the challenges archaeologists face in the ways that they approach the archaeological record to learn about the past and manage archaeological resources. “Practice” is defined broadly and topics can include, but are not limited to, innovations in approach, technique, method, technology, business models, collaboration, compliance, process, ethics, theory, public engagement, and training. The journal is a benefit of membership in the Society for American Archaeology (SAA). Many new features have been added as of June, 2014.

Articles are published to Americae’s website immediately upon final acceptance, rather than relying on a set number of issues published on a predetermined schedule. All articles may be printed free of charge as PDF files. In addition to publishing high quality color images and line drawings, our platform also supports data types that are not feasible in traditional paper journals (videos, animations, sound files, etc.).

H-ART is a semiannual publication (January-June, July-December) and is published at the beginning of each of these periods.
