As a part of Anth-402 Archaeological Field Methods, I participated in the archaeological survey being conducted of the Palouse Prairie ahead of the restoration project beginning. I participated in background research at the university archives, as well as pedestrian survey through the project area and shovel testing of select sites. Through the project, I learned of the stages of Archaeological research and site excavation, legal and ethical codes for archaeologists, and various field techniques utilized by archaeologists while in the field.
