I wish my university did something like this on campus. I have never been able to take the study abroad courses offered by my Anthropology and Archaeology department as they are too expensive. My department requires a fieldwork course for the major and the one I decided to take in the city was a total rip off because thinking we would be learning how to do work on the field, we only learned how to grid and make a map. It's upsetting because I want to be an archaeologist, but by the looks of it I will be graduating with no experience whatsoever on such an essential skill. :/

Great follow up video to a fascinatinc podcast. So neat that the students get to do this on campus. Is that a Star Wars themed sweater I see?
