Thousands of Resources, Ready to help.
Archaeological investigations take place in Michigan every year. Several of these projects are archaeological field schools aimed at teaching excavation techniques to college students, but others allow a first-hand look for the general public to see archaeologists at work. There are excavations going on every summer at Fort Michilimackinac. Western Michigan University holds an annual open house at their Fort St. Joseph project, and the Campus Archaeology Program as regularly "on call" at Michigan State University when summer projects disturb the ground.
