Fall 2023

This is the webpage for the Fall 2023 Archaeology Methods and Lab course. We will update it will information throughout the fall term. Check out our Weekly Field and Lab summaries for updates!

This fall, we will look into early Carleton College campus history and explore the Seccombe House Music Hall. Seccombe House was built in 1866 as a private residence, used by Carleton students from 1880 – 1914 as a Music Hall, and moved off its foundations to a nearby neighborhood in 1916, where it is currently still used as faculty housing. We plan to locate the original foundations on campus (near Skinner Memorial Chapel) and learn more about early campus life at Carleton.
