Piecing together the past
Exchanging a shirt and tie for dirt-covered clothes and sunscreen, and trading in pens and Power Point for trowels and survey equipment, Towson professor Bob Wall doesn't have the typical college professor job description.

Wall, who teaches anthropology classes part-time, has been working at an excavation site in Allegany County since 1993, digging up artifacts from as early as the Ice Age.

"This site is an archaeologist's dream site. There is no shortage of research questions to look at and things to explore," Wall said.

Kind of an Archaeology 101 article. Sounds like a neat site though.
