Project Description

Join us for another exciting season of exploration at the Buried Gardens of Kampsville Site (TBGOK), a 2000 year old village site located in Kampsville.  In addition to a well-preserved midden deposit, the 2012 season uncovered evidence of pit structures and much more.  Our field program is a great place to learn the basics of field and laboratory work, or to refresh your skills.  No previous experience is required; everyone welcome, we work in a collegial environment!
