Students Excavate Ancestral Cherokee House

Monday, August 16, 2010

The NPS Digest posted an article today about a group of Eastern Band of Cherokee Indian high school students from the Cherokee and Snowbird communities that spent this past July excavating a tenth century ancestral house in the Great Smoky Mountains.

The site offered an opportunity for the students to learn about a poorly understood period in Cherokee prehistory (Mississippian, AD 1000 - 1350).
