2015.  The CHSS Archaeology Expo was a huge success!  Students showing the community their artifacts and displays.  The students also took the community on a tour of their dig site!
During the 5th Annual Spring Dig in 2014, the CAS and the UoB began working with the Cape Hatteras Secondary School and its students on a collaborative archaeological research project.  The CHSS students were able to participate in every aspect of an archaeological excavation from digging, sifting, cleaning and sorting the artifacts, cataloguing the artifacts, learning the process of wet sieving, and even plotting and documenting the trench site information.

The CAS /UoB/ CHSS Collaborative Research Project continued in 2015 and we hope to continue this project for many years to come.
