Fall 2013 Topic:
ANTH 180: FS: Discovering the Origins of Washington and Lee Using Historical Archaeology (3). First-Year Seminar. Prerequisite: First-Year class standing. This seminar introduces students to the practice of historical archaeology using Liberty Hall Academy and recent excavations on the main Washington and Lee campus as case studies. Students work on collaborative projects which present the findings of our research to a broader local and visiting public. Using archaeological excavation, documentary research, artifact analysis, and computer mapping, we explore the range of questions and answers that these sources make possible. Students work together to produce public interpretations about the University’s early history using their hands-on experience with the archaeological data. (SS4) Gaylord. Fall 2013
