From Jack Rossen, to those interested in field school in Hawaii​:

We are really pleased to announce a collaborative indigenous archaeological field school on the Big Island of Hawai`i! We test excavated last summer at Maluaka, part of the South Kona agricultural field system. Kamehameha Schools, the Native Hawaiian land trust, has requested that I coordinate investigations leading to a rebuilding and revitalization of traditional agriculture. Arch Field School Maluaka 2016 flier FebTwo leaders of the Hawaiian cultural revitalization movement, Mahealani Pai and Keonelehua Kalawe, will be co-directing the project. The site features stone terraces, planting pits, house platforms, underground drainage canals, and even built mounds which we think were observation posts. The site has also produced artifacts, including volcanic glass, digging stick points, and grooved adzes. I attach a flier. The credit costs were just announced by the University of Hawai`i at Hilo, which is hosting the field school. In-state cost for the 4 credit field course is $1152 ($288 per credit), while out of state is $1628 ($407 per credit). Registration opens April 1. There is a roofed camping facility with showers and bathrooms for our exclusive use. Please contact me at [email protected] for more info.
