Abstract

Since archaeology studies the full spectrum of the human past, it is naturally an academic discipline that engages a very wide range of topics – spanning the humanities, social sciences, physical sciences, and technology. Often, archaeological projects also take place in international settings, with team members joining from around the world. Therefore, archaeological fieldwork offers an ideal laboratory for experimenting with interdisciplinary learning in intercultural settings. Over the last several years, our project has engaged university students in a field research program either by hosting them in Armenia or through their remote contributions. Students have joined our project as volunteers or as part of official university courses in order to learn about archaeology and the digital humanities. Their experiences shed light on the learning context of archaeological field projects within an interdisciplinary and intercultural framework.
