Archaeology Fieldwork in China

Archaeology Fieldwork in China

While archaeology is a professional trade that requires many years of university study and, often, advanced degrees to get into, there are various archaeological volunteer opportunities that you can engage in or field schools operating in China.

The following is a list of archaeology courses and volunteer opportunities in China:

  • The Chinese Institute of Archaeology offers a variety of courses all around China — from Henan to the Three Gorges. They are currently looking for a volunteer to translate Chinese archaeological documents into English.
  • UCLA operates an archaeology field school at the Yangguanzhai Neolithic site in the Wei River Valley of Gansu province. Go here to apply.
  • SFU offers an archaeology field school in China that takes students around to the famous sites for six weeks.
