The Cuidad Perdida field school was a fantastic field school. The thing I liked best about this field school was that it was very multifaceted. It was more than just archeology. It was a really memorable and inspirational experience both academically and socially. Since being on this field school I have altered my degree to go into a field similar to what I was doing on this filed school. The students who will have the best success on this filed school will have a desire for more than just the archeology or academic education but those who want a life experience that will challenge them socially, linguistically, physically, mentally and emotionally. The challenges I faced on this field school were ones well outside of the academia.
