The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation– EXARC Fellowship is intended to advance the investigation and interpretation of archaeological and experimental archaeological heritage by supporting research and scholarship through a partnership between EXARC, the international organization of Archaeological Open-Air Museums (AOAM) and Experimental Archaeology, and the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.
This fellowship will fund a one month of scholarship in residence at the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. Successful proposals will demonstrate potential to advance the understanding and practice of reconstructive and experimental archaeology and its interpretation through structured experimentation to recreate material culture, technology, or life-ways of the past. Applicants need experience in ancient technology, experimental archaeology, or interpretation, applicable to the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation or 18th century America. Fellows are expected to be in continuous residence at Colonial Williamsburg and to actively participate in the intellectual life of the Foundation's research, educational, and interpretive campus. Fellowships run for one month totaling $2,500.
The application deadline is June 15th, 2023. Decisions will be announced July 1st, 2023.
