Commendable collaboration this summer at Ithaca College.


Contributed by Kimberly Anderson

During the summer of 2013, Jack Rossen directed an archaeological field school at a 1400s Cayuga settlement where anthropology students from four colleges (IC, Cornell, Wells, TC3) participated.

Brooke Hansen's students from IC Summer College for High School Students  and Michael "Bodhi" Rogers' students from the Physics Department also worked at the site, helping out with excavations and screening and conducting ground penetrating radar and magnetometer studies. This work was supported by a Dana Internship with Macy O'Hearn '13, who was crew chief at the site and is studying recovered materials along with Sarah Ward '13. A related exhibit at the Frontenac Museum in Union Springs is being executed by Kayla Sewell '14.
