The article is devoted to summarizing the experience of conducting summer archaeological field schools in Ukraine. During 2015–2021, the authors of this publication acted as organizers of archaeological schools. The successful result of such work was the involvement of historians in the excavations of monuments in Ukraine – Bilsk and Motronyn hillforts of the Scythian period, settlements and barrows, as well as monuments of the early modern era on the castle hill in Chyhyryn. In this way,
... participants worked on different types of archaeological sites. The founder of this project was the Institute of Archeology of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. Oleksandr Mohylov, a Senior Researcher at the Institute of Archeology of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, became the head of the project. Specialists in archeology from Ukraine, Moldova, Poland and Japan were involved in the work of the archaeological school. The training of future specialists in the field of history and especially future archaeologists requires the mastery of special professional competences, including practical skills in working with archaeological sources and independently organizing and carrying out excavations. While studying at universities, students acquire some of these skills during internships. Recently, another form of organizing the educational and scientific process is gaining popularity – the summer field archaeological school. Scientific archaeological expeditions are often the basis for summer school organizations. The school allows you to combine practical work at archaeological sites, lecture courses on archeology and history, as well as excursion and educational activities. As a result, participation in the archeology school provides an opportunity not only to consolidate the acquired knowledge, but also to gain practical work skills. Such events are also useful from the point of view of professional development, they serve as a platform for the exchange of experience between specialists and allow the implementation of an approach in which the acquisition of new skills occurs throughout life.
