Author(s): Bethany Morrison

Year: 2015


Beyond his career as a professor and researcher, Dr. Scott Fedick has been a patient and dedicated teacher of archaeological field schools. In this capacity he leaves a legacy of changed lives. This paper looks back on the BRASS and Yalahau field schools and the lasting impression they left on participants. It also discusses field school pedagogy, looking at what has changed and what remains the same since the days of Scott´s famous death marches.
