My time here in Nebraska has unfortunately come to an end, however I am glad that I had this great opportunity to learn about the detailed archaeological process of documentation, preservation and excavation of historical sites. During my internship at the Midwest Archaeological Center, I had the great opportunity to work with an excellent staff who guided and assisted me through this excellent research opportunity based on climate change that is currently affecting the upper Midwest region.

This summer has been a great one, as I took part in my first fieldwork experience at Wilson’s Creek in Missouri. During my fieldwork week in Missouri I worked with the staff and volunteers who assisted us in mapping an archaeological site, and they also gave us an educational tour of the site and its relevance to the American Civil War. The post-internship workshop allowed me to learn what the other interns were working on this summer and it also gave me a great insight on potential National Park Service opportunities. This internship is one that is filled with great memories, learning experiences, and educational opportunities that I will truly cherish during my academic career!
