A University of Pittsburgh at Bradford Archaeology Field School was conducted almost every summer on the Allegheny National Forest from 1987 through 2009, under the supervision of archaeologist Isabelle Champlin, UPB instructor of anthropology, working in collaboration with ANF archaeologists Leif Anderson, Robert Scott, Bert Herbert, Dean Harshberger, Rick Kandare, and Jack McLaughlin. The projects each summer were Phase I site surveys, with shovel testing. The field school participants were usually university students enrolled in Anthropology 0108: Archaeological Fieldwork, but also included IU9 middle school students enrolled in Summer Academy, and Blaisdell Elementary School 5th grade students.
This lists all the field schools, with the CCC sites in bold font. Besides the archaeologists, hydrologists, and surveyors from the Forest Service, the students also met Dr. Schultz, a CCC era historian, and veterans from the New Castle chapter of the National Association of Civilian Conservation Corps Alumni, who traveled from near Pittsburgh. Summary reports of the fieldwork projects were submitted to the Allegheny National Forest at the end of each summer, including maps and photographs.
