Students Conduct Archaeology on Redstone Arsenal

History students enrolled in the Cultural Resource Management/History 320 course this semester have the unique opportunity to participate in archaeological work on Redstone Arsenal. Surprisingly, the Arsenal consists of 972 archaeological sites across its 38,000 acres. Students learn about a wide range of archaeological specialities, such as lithic technologies (stone tools), prehistoric ceramics, battlefield archaeology, geomorphology, and cave archaeology. The students are currently excavating an antebellum homestead close to Gate 9.
