SDSU Archaeology Team Unearthing Long-Buried Whaley House Artifacts
San Diego State University - SDSU anthropology professor Seth Mallios and his team of students are spending their summer in a way only they would enjoy - inside a long-buried well at what’s been called the most haunted house in the United States.

With the support of the County of San Diego and Save Our Heritage Organisation, Mallios is excavating the site of a long-buried cistern and nearby privy, or outhouse, on the property of the historic Whaley House in Old Town San Diego. SDSU’s South Coastal Information Center and students from SDSU’s Department of Anthropology field school are assisting with the dig.
