PROGRAM OVERVIEW
Thailand has a rich and vibrant history. It is home to one of the world's earlist Bronze Age cultures, as well as walled cities and elaborate Buddhist Temples. Today, Thailand is a thriving Southeast Asian nation with excellent cuisine and incredible natural wonders. Students in the program will learn about the prehistory of Thailand while excavating and analyzing archaeological skeletal materials from the Iron Age site of Promtin Tai. Students will also have the opportunity to visit Buddhist temples in Bangkok, explore ancient temples in Lopburi, and visit the world-famous Angkor Wat complex in Cambodia.

ACADEMICS
ANT 427 requires a prerequisite of ANT 421 Human Osteology. However, the instructor may allow students with an appropriate background permission to take the course. Please contact Dr. Case by e-mail with questions. The Bioarchaeological Fieldwork course assumes that students have learned how to identify and side nearly all of the 206 bones of the human skeleton.  This can be studied in advance of the field school if necessary. ANT 389 satisfies Social Sciences GEP.
