AHAP2007 cataloguing finished!

I have finished writing the Summary Report for Akin House Archaeology Project 2007. The final artifact total is 5,926 fragments of ceramic, glass, wood, bone, brick, stone, charcoal, slag, metal, fabric, plastic, and shell from the 18th through 21st centuries. My Research Assistant, Justin, entered detailed information about each piece into an Excel spreadsheet. Justin's work was funded by the Harvard Extension School Faculty Aide Program.Planning for AHAP2008 is well underway. Check out the listing for the archaeological fieldwork courses Soc/Ant 180 (Historical Archaeology of New England) and Soc/Ant 407 (Field Inquiry) in the UMass Dartmouth Summer School course catalogue for more information.
