Summer Artifact Processing

Although there will be no formal archaeological excavation at Elfreth's Alley this summer, there are still opportunities to get your hands dirty cleaning artifacts!  Throughout the summer, we will be cleaning and processing artifacts recovered from investigations along the Alley.  Artifact processing takes place at Temple University's Anthropology Laboratory.  The Volunteer Opportunities section of the blog has the most updated schedule of lab days, an online signup sheet for volunteering, and  directions to the lab.  We have already started processing and rediscovered some engaging artifacts.  Come out and join in the lab work fun!
