Archaeology class: educational and fun

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- University of Northern Iowa students are learning the fundamentals of field archaeology...

It's part of UNI's archaeological field school.

Students learn how to excavate archaeological sites while exploring the history of Black Hawk county.

Professor Dr. Don Gaff says they've found some great old artifacts -- like a spear point that's likely 7000 years old. But, he says most of the work is focused on a campsite at Heartman Reserve that dates between 300 and 700 A.D.
