Archaeology in Montclair

 

Students enrolled in the Anthropology Department's class on Archaeology in Montclair led a successful excavation at the Montclair Historical Society site over the weekend of March 21-23. The team tested one section of the site and recovered a wide range of artifacts related to the history of the property, which dates to the early 1800s. The Archaeology in Montclair class provides students with hands-on training in historical archaeology and the opportunity for service learning with community partners working to learn and preserve local history.
