Archaeologists dig up old campus
Archaeologists began digging one-meter -by-one meter squares near what used to be the south end of the president's house.

Pike said archaeologists wanted to recover artifacts and structural remains from the house. By June 29, four square holes revealed an old cable line, a button made of bone and a round-shot bullet among piles of brick rubble.

Archaeologists also found evidence of the house's foundation - base layers of the entrance columns.

For the archaeologists on site, the project was long awaited.
