Archaeology project goes national
An archaeology project involving middle school students from the University of Wyoming Lab School that began in the fall of 2005 is making news across the country.

Four of the 101 students involved in the “Unlocking Secrets in the Soil” project this school year have been selected to attend The History Channel-sponsored Save Our History National Youth Summit May 14-16, according to instructor and archaeologist Cynthia Webb. Webb said there were many students deserving of the honor to attend the summit, but The History Channel invited 10 grant winners, asking for representatives from each winner. Expenses are being paid by The History Channel.
