The Institute for Field Research (IFR) was created in March 2011 by a group of leading academic archaeologists. Operating as an independent, nonprofit academic organization, we break down traditional institutional barriers and deliver high quality adcademic archaeology field schools to students regardless of the university in which they matriculate.
We work with leading scholars from universities around the world, and deliver a broad range of regional and temporal programs. We are committed to excellence in research and teaching. With our field schools, students are no longer limited to the expertise of faculty members at their home campus, and faculty can recruit the best students from around the world.
