Learn about work done by historical archaeologists telling surprising stories about the recent past that is all but invisible in the written record. Examples would be discovering 52 cats in a Cincinnati privy and what that tells us about life in the 19th century, or how archaeology sheds new light on the lives of Chinese workers, prostitutes, mill workers, and others living in the logging community of Sandpoint, a project that resulted in the recovery of over 600,000 objects.
