Autumn Painter and Susan Kooiman created this site as a joint research project through the Campus Archaeology Program Fellowship, directed by Dr. Lynne Goldstein. The website was built by Autumn Beyer through Michigan State University's Cultural Heritage Informatics Fellowship.
Works to mitigate and protect the archaeological resources on Michigan State University’s beautiful and historic campus. Campus Archaeology works with multiple departments across the University to make sure that this cultural heritage is protected. Almost the entire process of completing an excavation project, from design to historical research to excavation to reporting to outreach is completed by MSU undergraduate and graduate students, advancing their education in unique ways. CAP also works to contribute to the public understanding of MSU’s cultural heritage, through contributions to academic journals, giving talks and presentations on campus, and developing outreach opportunities throughout the community.
