Students in Professor Jordan Kerber’s course, “Field Methods and Interpretation in Archaeology” (ANTH 253) use a local archaeological dig site as their classroom, excavating artifacts from the Brunk site in Lincoln, NY. The site contains the remains of an Oneida village, dating to the late 1500s or early 1600s and then again during the 1750s. Over the past several fall semesters, ANTH 253 students have found several hundred Native American and European artifacts, including stone chipping debris and tools, pottery, animal remains, glass trade beads, smoking pipe fragments, and metal scraps. Students in the class focus on excavating, processing, analyzing, and interpreting archaeological objects recovered from this site, as seen in the pictures here.
