This class will review the results of the archaeological excavation carried out at Potsdam’s Camp Union in summer 2019. After a brief introduction to the field of historical archaeology, participants will learn about the questions guiding the research carried out at the site as well as the methods used to help answer those questions. The preliminary results of the excavation also will be described.

Hadley Kruczek-Aaron, chair of the Department of Anthropology at SUNY Potsdam, has been excavating on historic period sites throughout the United States and abroad for more than two decades. She specializes in the nineteenth-century Northeast United States and is especially interested in documenting the everyday lives of those left out of our history books as well as re-examining the people, places, and events we think we already understand.
