SCSU Field School

St. Cloud State University (SCSU) is currently holding an archaeology field school in Charles A. Lindberg State Park near Little Falls.  Rob Mann, St. Cloud State University professor, is excavating at the site of the 1839-1841 Little Elk Mission in what is now within Charles A. Lindbergh State Park (former Little Elk Heritage Preserve).  The site was occupied during 1839-1841 by colonial settlers and Ojibwe groups. The fieldwork will take place May 19, 2014-June 20, 2014. Three public archaeology days will be held on Saturday, May 31, 2014, Saturday, June 7, 2014 and Saturday, June 14, 2014. Pay them a visit if you get in the area.  They have started a Facebook page to chronicle their progress:
