Archaeology Dig Continues At Elementary School
For about a month, archaeologists have been chipping away at what used to be the Alameda Pueblo underneath Alameda Elementary School and sifting through the dirt to find remnants of ancient civilization.

Archaeologists are mostly finding pieces of pottery and animal bones, but they hope these small artifacts will lead to some big answers.

Archaeologists will analyze these remnants -- one piece dates from between 1450 and 1515 -- to see if people lived here when the Spanish conquered the area.
