Archaeologists to study antebellum UA dorm site
Archaeologists will begin digging in the spot of the university’s original dormitories today, a site long since covered in asphalt as part of Capstone Drive on the north side of the Quad. They plan to find out whether any artifacts remain underground.

The initial work should take less than three weeks and cut only through parking spots. The street will remain open to traffic.

In the fall, the university will begin a campus transit system, altering traffic flow on some streets and closing others to make way for buses.
