Archaeological Student Internship May 28-August 3, 2013 – Petrified Forest National Park

Petrified Forest National Park will host an archaeological student
internship from May 28-August 3, 2013!

The park is in the process of doubling in size as a result of a recent
boundary expansion and internship positions will focus on
archaeological survey and mapping of newly acquired lands. Students
will work directly with park archaeologists to learn survey and
recording skills, site mapping, as well as artifact identification.

The archaeological record of Petrified Forest encompasses materials
from the Paleoindian through Historic periods. A significant Ancestral
Pueblo occupation within the park includes sites that range in size
from hamlets to the equivalent of small towns. The park’s incredible
diversity includes: some of the earliest ceramics on the Colorado
Plateau; unparalleled rock art sites; major prehistoric trade and
migration routes; early stagecoach lines and railroads; and a section
of route 66. This is a unique opportunity with a vast array of
research and training opportunities.

We are looking for excited, motivated students, who have attended an
archaeological field school or have equivalent levels of experience.
Housing in the park will be provided as well as a $150 weekly stipend.

Please provide a letter of interest, a copy of your CV, and the
contact information for three references by April 19, 2013 to:
