Archaeology students excavating historic ruins in Jamestown, Va.

A group from Jason Anderson’s Archaeology class is in Jamestown, Va., helping with the excavation of the Angela site, where these students are troweling. Ceramic, iron, pottery, porcelain and pipe stems have been found. Jamestown was the first permanent English settlement in North America. According to Anderson, the students will be drawing profile images of the wall of the site later, and also taking depth measurements with the Total Station. All students toured the lab before taking to the field.
