Archaeology Group Projects
Below you will find links to ongoing projects (both foreign and domestic) being conducted by members of the URI archaeology group. If you are interested in joining any of these projects, please contact the appropriate URI project director.
Please check back frequently. We will add projects to this list as soon as they go live.
|Kristine Bovy||The Puget Sound Traditional Foods and Diabetes Project will, for the first time, use archaeological and historic data to develop a long-term picture of Native American diet in Puget Sound, and be a source of information about the potentially therapeutic value of traditional foods.
The Poverty Point Site is an interactive site exploration tool.
|Bridget Buxton||The Akko Crusades Project|
|Mary Hollinshead||NOAA Explorer: Aegean and Black Sea 2006 – From April to June 2006, scientists from the University of Rhode Island led an expedition to study the archaeology and geology of the Aegean and Black Seas aboard two research vessels, the Greek R/V AEGAEO and the University of Rhode Island’s R/V ENDEAVOR.|
|William Krieger|| Israel Coast Exploration Project
A multidisciplinary research program and field school that explores Israel’s coast from both land and sea, this project connects students with an international team of experts representing a wide variety of disciplines.
|Roderick Mather||URI Bermuda Program in History & Underwater Archaeology. Based at the Bermuda Maritime Museum, this diving-intensive field school teaches students how to survey, document, map and excavate historic shipwrecks. Participants will have a chance to examine a variety of shipwrecks from the 16th – 19th centuries; to undertake systematic archaeological surveys of the reef systems; and to document, map and test excavate an English shipwreck from the late 18th / early 19th century. Students who are able to scuba dive get the most out of the course.
The Rhode Island Endeavor Program (RIEP) is a state-supported initiative that provides Rhode Islanders with direct access to the scientific research and educational capabilities of an Intermediate Class research vessel, the R/V Endeavor. This support underscores Rhode Island’s commitment to maintain a strong program in marine research and education.

Below you will find links to sites promoting Archaeological projects. Although URI Archaeology group faculty are not associated with these sites, please use us as a resource if you have any questions.
Some of these sites have both field schools (which you take for credit) and other employment opportunities (usually applicable after you have had a field school).
