Virtual Archaeology Course Fall 2019

ANTH 399 – Virtual Archaeology is now available for registration. After a successful trial run in Spring 2019, Professor Laura Shackelford and her team are showcasing their virtual archaeological dig in a classroom setting. No prerequisite classes or knowledge is required! 

The class is designed to take you on an archaeological dig where you make the decisions about what to do, learn how to do it, and then reap the benefits (or the consequences).  “Using commercially-available VR hardware, we have created an immersive, interactive, room scale virtual archaeological site where students can learn the skills practiced on site at an archaeological excavation.”
