Faculty, Anthropology Department, CSU, Chico
Every summer since 2008, CSU, Chico students have traveled to the Caribbean island of Antigua to participate in an ongoing archaeological excavation there. Chico State Anthropology Professor Georgia Fox has led these trips, during which students gain valuable field experience. In this presentation, Dr. Fox describes the work of excavating the buried ruins of a colonial sugar plantation. The building foundations and artifacts that have been unearthed by the students reveal much about the history of early European settlers in Antigua. Additional groups of students continue to travel to Antigua with Dr. Fox each summer.
