Day 1 and 2: Tour of the Reserve and Introduction to Course

On day 2 Capilano University's Archaeology Field School of 2010 adventured for the first time this semester into the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve in the lower mainland of British Columbia. The field school is led by the instructor Bob Muckle, and consists of 15 adventurous students, who are eager to learn about archaeology in a hands-on excavation site setting.

Today the troupe visited various excavation sites from previous field school years, allowing the students to become more familiar with the land usage and history of some sections of the reserve.

Some of today’s highlights included visiting former cabin & logging sites from the early to mid 1900’s, and an old water irrigation tunnel.

More fun is bound to come tomorrow, with the investigation and familiarization of different sections of the reserve.

Day 1 was in the lab, and involved doing basic paper work, figuring out supplies, going over course objectives, introducing ourselves, meeting the instructor, and arranging plans for the next day.
