Students unearth archaeological discoveries

Hopewell Field School

Summer break has begun a little differently for a group of anthropology students, who have put their vacation plans on hold for a memorable field school experience in Ohio. Among the highlights so far, they say, have been learning the processes of an archaeological dig, discovering Hopewell artifacts and campfire conversations — along with a growing appreciation of wind and shade.

DeeAnne Wymer, professor of anthropology, and a group of students hit the road each spring in mid-May to spend four weeks in southern Ohio digging at a Hopewell habitation site. The archeological field school experience enables student teams to rely on new imaging technologies to uncover another living site of the Mound Builders from 2,000 years ago. #CollaborativeLearning
