For 10 James Madison University archaeology interns, dirt is life.
They sit in it, stare at it, scrape at it, draw it and when they sleep, they dream about it.
But why the dirty job?
To dig up the truth, of course.
They’re trying, literally, to uncover the original location of James Madison’s front gate at his home, Montpelier, located near Orange.
Note to all professional archaeologists out there: When approached by any form of journalist, your first statement should be "Do not use any form of the 'digging archaeology' joke."
