Anth 205

The Western Center is pleased to open its simulated dig site to the class of ANTH 205. The course, offered by Mt. San Jacinto College, focuses students on archaeological excavations. Anthropology professor Pam Ford, who is teaching the class, believes that "the simulated site is a unique opportunity for college students to learn excavation without damage to the archaeological record as well as to have fun in hands-on learning. The partnership between the college and the Western Center is a benefit to the entire community". The flagship class of 10 has met the required prerequisites and seems to be enthusiastically tackling the job at hand.
