The history of our region is rich in detail, and a crowd of people will get their hands dirty this summer digging into it. Quite literally.
The Geisel Homestead on the Southern Oregon Coast and other sites of hostilities between white settlers and native Americans are the focus of a summer archaeology project by the Southern Oregon University Laboratory of Anthropology (SOULA).
Faculty leaders Mark Tveskov and Chelsea Rose have already uncovered a number of sites from the "Indian wars" of the mid-1800s. Rose and Tveskov return to the studio to tell us about their summer efforts.
