Telling A Human Story: Longwood Archaeology at the Ward Burton Wildlife Foundation

In the fall of 2022, an Advanced Archaeology class from Longwood University continued to excavate a site known as The Sanders Site at the Ward Burton Wildlife Association in Halifax County, Virginia. There, students were able to experience hands-on learning while finding projectile points, pottery pieces, and bone fragments, all helping paint a picture of what life was like for indigenous peoples in Pre-Columbian America.
