Vanderbilt Students Digging Into The Past

Vanderbilt students are stepping back in time by digging in the dirt and getting class credit for it.

They are doing an archaeological dig behind an on-campus 1870’s home of a Vanderbilt University professor and his family. Students are searching in the dirt to find items from the servants who lived in the smaller building that was behind the main home.

It’s part of a new class, Archaeological Excavation, and students are finding some long forgotten items.
