West Virginia Archaeology

archaeologyFor the past decade, the Graduate Humanities Program has collaborated with the Council for West Virginia Archaeology to provide public programming, engage K-12 education, and conduct collaborative research. Dr. Robert F. Maslowski, president of the Council, writes: "The Graduate Humanities Program has collaborated with Concord University, the West Virginia Humanities Council, the Council for West Virginia Archaeology, the West Virginia Archeological Society, the Glenwood Foundation, the University of Kentucky and the Summers County Historical Society to provide unique field experiences and programs for its students and to obtain grants for archeological research in southern West Virginia.” Through these collaborations, and multiple graduate seminars, Graduate Humanities Program students, Maslowski writes, “have participated in archaeological excavations at the Hubbard House, the Graham House, Arbuckle’s Fort, Fort Blair, and most recently, the Glenwood Estate.”

Here are just two stories about some recent activities:
