OSWEGO - An archaeology dig is different than digging for treasure, but 11 SUNY Oswego students found great value in participating in the return of the Archaeology Field School over the summer.

Led by anthropology faculty member Alanna Ossa, the students unearthed plenty of items and experience in excavating a midden (trash heap) at the historic Richardson-Bates House on Oswego’s east side.
