Relive the Past

Archaeology Work done at battlefield

A cooperative management has invited the public to see the archaeology students work during the 3 week archaeological field school class at the Wilson’s Creek National Battlefield.

Students will try to locate structures with historic occupation around the Dug Springs area.

“The information found through this study will allow the battlefield to document the history of this newly acquired parcel of land, which we will then share with our visitors,” said battlefield Superintendent Ted Hillmer.

After the completion of the field work, a report containing the findings would be given to the park authorities.
