Feb. 20, 2019

Kamehameha Schools has partnered with the UH Mānoa College of Social Sciences and the International Archaeological Research Institute to continue the Punalu‘u Archaeological Field School, which will take place on KS ‘āina in Punalu‘u from July 8-Aug. 2, 2019.

The three-credit college course (ANTH 381) features a low student-to-instructor ratio to ensure an immersive, hands-on learning experience through tasks such as: pedestrian survey and excavation; mapping and GPS recording; as well as artifact, botanical and animal identification and cataloguing. Results of the research will help with community engagement efforts, cultural heritage education and preservation, and stewardship activities in Punalu‘u.

Applications are available from Dr. Seth Quintus (, and are due April 1 with final acceptance determinations to be made shortly thereafter.
