Volunteers needed for W.Va. archaeological work

Apr. 29, 2013 @ 07:33 AM

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — A team set to explore the Grave Creek Mound Archaeological Complex in Moundsville is looking for volunteers this summer.

As many as 15 participants will help contribute to West Virginia’s preservation and educational goals while also learning about the region’s ancient history June 2-9.

The West Virginia University Native American Studies Program, the Division of Culture and History and the Humanities Council are partners in the program.

It includes free lodging in Moundsville and transportation between Morgantown and Moundsville, plus partial reimbursement for dining and mileage.

Also planned are a nightly film series and an all-day archaeological symposium on June 8. The featured speaker is Rebecca Morehouse, curator of state collections at the Maryland Archaeological Conservation Laboratory.
