Ten Wittenberg students prepared the north end of the excavation area of W3776, a late 19th century garage built on Wittenberg’s campus in the early 1880s. They moved a layer of gravel placed by the demolition crew in 2013. With the site prepared for excavation work, we placed markers for three new units of excavation. Follow our progress as three teams begin their work. After morning fieldwork, the students will be gathering primary sources to write a social history of the homeowners for the property, first known as 217 Ferncliff Avenue.
