UAB students dig at Sloss Furnace

As reported by this article in the Birmingham News, nine Anthro students just finished an archaeological dig at Sloss Furnace. They were seeking to learn about the Quarters -- an area where company houses used to be in the 20th century. The site was home for many Sloss workers and their families.

The next step is to take the findings to the McWane Center and clean, study and then catalog items valuable for the study. UAB News produced a second story with a video.

Graduate fellow Christel Carlisle and public administration graduate student Jeremiah Rastegar were two of the nine students digging at Sloss Furnace
