Ever wonder what's buried deep beneath the surface on the campus of Michigan State University? Anthropology Professors have and when they heard university leaders wanted ideas for MSU's Sesquicentennial celebrations they took a shot.
Monday, they grabbed their shovels and dug in after President Lou Anna Simon broke ground for the university's first archaeological dig.
Twenty students, three grad student supervisors and two professors are conducting the dig on the site of MSU's first dormitory. It was called Saints' Rest and was home to about 80 men before the building burned down in 1876.
The dig will last for six weeks and will be open for the public to experience July 9 and 10. Once the artifacts are cleaned and cataloged they will be on display at the university's museum.
