CAP Update

Happy 2019! The spring semester has started at Michigan State University and that means that the Campus Archaeology Program is back in action, preparing for all of the events and projects for the spring and summer! Below is an update on the projects we will be working on and what events we will be participating in and hosting:

In a few weeks we will be at the Bennett Woods Elementary School Science Night with a table full of artifacts, our stratigraphy game, and some of the tools we use for excavations.

This April, we will be participating in the Michigan State University Science Festival Expo Day, where you will be able to screen for artifacts, play our stratigraphy game, participate in our #ColorCAP coloring page competition, and check out some artifacts we have uncovered on campus!

Starting in May, CAP will be hosting an archaeological field school on the corner of Shaw and Hagadorn Roads on MSU’s campus. We will have a public day where everyone is welcome to stop by and ask us questions, get a site tour, and learn more about CAP and the research that is taking place.

For any MSU alumni grandparents, we will also be hosting a session during MSU’s Grandparents University! If you are interesting in participating, please check out their website: https://alumni.msu.edu/learn/on-campus/grandparents-university/.

Our CAP Fellows will also be continuing work on a number of projects, including the early food project, researching the historic sugar house in the Sandford Woodlot, photogrammetry/3D modeling for our #artifactoftheweek posts, alumni interview blog series, creating new outreach activities, and researching database management strategies! Stay tuned for our weekly blog posts to learn more about the projects!
