Underground History: Native Battle Sites

Southern Oregon University

Stories tall and short may be told of past events, but the ground generally does not lie.  And that's the appeal of archaeology: digging up the true story. 

Our partners at the Southern Oregon University Laboratory of Anthropology share stories of the trade every month in Underground History. 

This month, we talk about unearthing artifacts at the sites of battles between Native Americans and whites.  SOULA's Mark Tveskov has done much of this in our region, and he'll present a paper on a conference coming up at the Mashantucket Pequot Research Center in Connecticut.  Dr. Tveskov and Kevin McBride and Ashley Bissonnette of the research center talk about their work.
