Indiana University offers archaeological field school “Exploring Social and Historical Landscapes of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem” every summer. The base of operations is Red Canyon Ranch, Shoshone National Forest, and the Crow Reservation, which are located in northern Wyoming and southern Montana. A research focus on residential use of space and heritage management allows students to study domestic architecture at nomadic Crow and Shoshone archaeological sites and gain experience in map making, surveying, and excavation techniques. Admission is by application only.
