2024 SCRAP Field School


The 2024 NH State Conservation and Rescue Archaeology Program (SCRAP) archaeology field school is structured in two sessions, each two weeks long (June 17 – June 28 and July 1 – July 12). Fieldwork will take place daily on weekdays from 8 AM to 4 PM. Attendance on Thursday, July 4 will be optional due to the holiday.


Sessions 1 and 2 will take place at Mollidgewock State Park in the town of Errol, NH. Field school participants will engage in excavation on a terrace of the Androscoggin River containing pre-contact Native American deposits focusing on an intact feature and an artifact concentration

identified during previous field investigations. Students will document specific activity areas that are associated with the site. Data recovery techniques, artifact identification, and excavation documentation skills will be taught.


Primitive camping (i.e., no showers or flush toilets) is available at the Mollidgewock State Park campground; however, participants must make their own arrangements by visiting the state park’s facility reservation website https://newhampshirestateparks.reserveamerica.com/.
