Students in ANTH S-1130 The Archaeology of Harvard Yard dig below the grass of Harvard Yard in search of artifacts that can inform gaps in the written history of Harvard College and the Indian College that stood in the Yard in the 17th century.

After a couple of weeks of carefully removing soil within one meter square excavation units, students continue to recover numerous artifacts from the past. With each level, they go deeper into history. In the process, students record artifacts, photograph their excavation units, and prepare artifacts for further study in the lab.

This is the 2nd of 4 videos documenting Summer 2011's findings and analysis. http://www.summer.harvard.edu/

ANTH S-1130 is taught by Christina J. Hodge, PhD, Senior Curatorial Assistant, Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, Harvard University, and Diana Loren, PhD, Associate Curator, Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, Harvard University.

Project partners include the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology, the Harvard Native American Program, the Harvard University Department of Anthropology, and the Massachusetts Commission on Indian Affairs.
