My Archaeology Internship in Uzbekistan: Journals From The Field

NYU Abu Dhabi sophomore Chaeri Lee, Class of 2017, had been digging around the internet for an internship idea when she happened upon a ground breaking opportunity: an international archaeological research collaboration in Central Asia, in an area known as one of the main crossroads of the ancient world.

It was the chance of a lifetime she couldn't pass up, especially being a fan of Indiana Jones and Jurassic Park. Lee, along with Fiona Kidd, assistant professor of history and art and art history, and several NYU and Uzbek archaeologists, spent one month conducting fieldwork in a remote corner of the Bukhara Oasis in Uzbekistan.

During the internship, Lee collected photos and wrote personal journals about her experience.
