Welcome to the New Interns!
As well as having new grad student research team, we also have a new group of undergraduate interns for this fall semester. Meet William, Eve and Paige!
William: I’m William Holt, a fourth year student of anthropology at Michigan State University. I participated in the 2010 Campus Archeological field school. I’ve also helped out with other digs around campus. This semester I want to research and share about MSU’s past before it was MSU, during prehistoric times. I want to to get hands on experience with cultural resource management, learn the latest technology used in my field, and get a better understanding of Anthropology.
Eve: My name is Eve Avdoulos and I will be a senior here at Michigan State University. I am planning to graduate with a major in Anthropology, a minor in Art History, and a specialization in Museum Studies. My interests lie within the fields of ancient Mediterranean archaeology and public archaeology. I have always been fascinated by history and understand how important it is to share this knowledge with others. I also really love being able to physically study the past. I have had the opportunity to excavate in Isthmia, Greece as well as participate in the Campus Archaeology Program’s summer field school right here on campus. I love Michigan State and I am very excited to be a part of the Campus Archaeology Program as an intern this semester. First and foremost I am looking forward to taking a hands on approach with our university’s past. In addition, I am very passionate about finding an outlet to share the archaeological information of our campus with others. I am very grateful to have this wonderful opportunity and I await the wonderful things that this program has in store.
Paige: I’m Paige Triezenberg, a senior Anthropology student here at MSU. Over the summer, I took part in the Campus Archaeology program and got to learn a lot about the excavation process. I’ve also volunteered in the Catalogues here at MSU, transferring non campus archaeology artifacts and working with them. My goal for the internship this semester is to create an online exhibit with the program OMEKA, creating a virtual database for (hopefully) a lot of the historical artifacts we’ve found so far.
The interns will have a number of blog updates throughout the semester on their projects, and we look forward to seeing what types of projects they will be working on.
