Ft. Massachusetts Field School

Adams State University’s six week field school program offers training in a wide array of basic techniques and modern technological tools, in addition to a crash course in the history of frontier military forts. This program is open to graduate and undergraduate students, in addition to avocational archaeologists and, on a case by case basis, highly motivated high school students 16 years or older. Come join us at this pristine wilderness site and experience this unique perspective on American frontier history!

The following video is a documentary made during the summer of 2012.  This is a great look at the location and some of the experiences you can expect.

Volunteers and casual visitors are welcome without charge. Whenever possible, they will be allowed to participate in field school activities.
