Archeology is not just about digging into prehistory, coming up with arrowheads, pottery shards and mastodon bones.
It can also give us a window into the not-too-distant past.
Say, the campus of Michigan State University in the mid-1800s.
That’s what Autumn Beyer is doing in her work with the MSU Campus Archeology Program. She’s studying what students and professors ate in the early days at Michigan State and how they got that food.
