Historic Grounds Archaeology Fund

The Historic Grounds Archaeology Fund was created by William C. Killgallon in 1999 to fund academic courses in archaeology, using the Academical Village and other sites within the original University boundaries as a field site, and secondarily the adjacent and other sites that may contribute to our understanding of the early history of the University. Activities that qualify for these funds include archaeological investigations of these sites, student interns participating in archaeological investigations in these sites, publication of reports on archaeological investigations at these sites, and conservation and exhibition of artifacts recovered from these sites. The allocation of these funds is at the discretion of the University landscape architect, in consultation with the chair of the Department of Anthropology and the senior preservation planner.
