EKU's Archaeology Field School excavated a site in Jackson County, Kentucky, within the Daniel Boone National Forest. The project extends a multi-year collaboration with the National Forest Service and EKU Archaeology. A dozen EKU Anthropology majors and Archaeology minors spent their summer with Archaeology professor Jon Endonino exploring the site. Find out more about what they learned at the rock shelter from these local news sources. We thank them for coverage of our exciting summer learning.
