Anyone with interest in history and even a little bit of extra time this fall should get out their phones.
Humboldt State University will be holding a historical archaeology field school during the fall, 2009 semester in the historic town of Falk and the public is invited to participate.
The field work will happen during october and november, between the rainy days. Folks can just volunteer or can sign up through HSU and receive credit. You’ll be digging in the dirt with the archeologists, looking for historical “treasure”.
Call Jamie Roscoe or Bill Rich at the HSU Cultural Resources Facility at (707) 826-5247 for more info or to sign up. You can also call Dave Johnson, archaeologst at the Arcata BLM at (707) 825-2320 for more info.
The excavations will be conducted at the dancehall and a small bachelor’s cabin site. Bill Rich says they are also looking for anyone with stories about this dance hall or any other, and artifacts from the area.
Anyone with info or an extra ounce of energy they want to spend at the site should give ’em a call.
