It's not exactly playing in the dirt, but it's close.
Archaeology allows its practitioners to spend time literally digging up pieces of our history.
And Southern Oregon University archaeologist Chelsea Rose is getting noticed for it.
Her work will be featured on national TV, on a program produced by Oregon Public Broadcasting.
Dr. Rose joins us in the studio, with a couple of colleagues on the phone.
Program note: Time Team America airs Monday (June 16th) at 10 PM in the Rogue Valley on SOPTV.
