Written by: Sarah Geegan Kim McBride, anthropology professor and co-director of the Kentucky Archaeological Survey, taught Anthropology 585: Field Methods in Archaeology at the Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill this summer. Twenty-five miles southwest of Lexington, this site provided a wealth of knowledge and experience for students enrolled in the 6-week summer course. Throughout the course, students learned basic excavation skills and used these techniques to pinpoint the exact location and dimensions two early 19th century Shaker buildings by locating and unearthing the corners of the stone foundations. The students also found, cleaned and cataloged artifacts that they found on the site. Photos and Video by: Dana Rogers
