Archaeological field research has historically been limited to career professionals and students in different positional along their collegiate path. Since 2006, AFAR at Davidson Day School
has been bucking that trend by pairing career professionals and collegiate-level students with high-achieving pre-collegiate students to carry out full-scale archaeological research in the Maya world and other historically significant areas. During this presentation, AFAR founder and director, Mat Saunders will discuss this unorthodox approach to the science of archaeology while student representatives from each of AFAR's archaeological field schools will share research results and anecdotal accounts of their experiences. Among the sites that will be discussed are the classic Maya city of Cahal Pech in western Belize, the medieval castle of Zorita de los Canes in central Spain, the site of Tróia in coastal Portugal, home of the largest salted fish production facility known in the Roman Empire, and the Macedonian city of Mieza, where a young Alexander studied under Aristotle.
