CART Lab

Interns & Work Study Programs

At the Cultural Resource Management & Protection Branch of the FCPA, both the Colchester Archaeological Research Team (CART) as well as other projects provide opportunities in the form of work study programs and internships. The programs focus in different areas including archaeological field and lab, office skills, archaeological collections and GIS.

While it is quieter than usual at the office and lab, the students are all here today. Jackie works on updating and organizing some of our old archaeological reference materials. Philip, our GIS intern, works on both GIS and in AutoCAD. Jonathan, the archaeological laboratory intern is helping to update our catalog before beginning his chosen project. Jen is helping with the archaeological collections.

Quiet in the CART Lab

The Colchester Archaeological Research Team is happy to be back for another Day of Archaeology & looking forward to seeing how our colleagues days are going.

Due to weather & staff schedules, the past two days have been busy at our lab in Northern Virginia; however, today is extremely quiet. Outside, it is perfect weather. A few of our staff are on vacation and a few are in meetings. Mostly, the field crew is taking advantage of the sun & reasonable temperature at the Old Colchester Park & Preserve while the CART lab director is enjoying the rare solitude.
