Archaeology makes a good story!

Hi everyone!

Opening the site to the public!
Today marked yet another successful Media Day at the Fort St. Joseph site--we were so pleased with with our speakers including the Dean of Arts and Sciences from Western Michigan University as well as the Provost, LuAnn Wurst the Anthropology Department Chair, Mayor of the City of Niles Michael McCauslin, our living history coordinators Barbara Schwaderer and Bob Myers, and of course our very own Dr. Michael Nassaney and student Alex Brand. Thanks everyone for coming out to hear about the program and get a sneak peek at the artifacts and units!

Also special thanks to Dorilee Schieble who was honored as our Volunteer of the Year--this project would be unable to continue without wonderful folks like yourself!

Here are some of the stories following today's events:
