NSC and Edmonds College Partner for Archaeology Field School
North Seattle College students partnered with Edmonds College students on an archaeological dig on North's campus at the site of remnants of the Kumasaka Farmhouse and Green Lake Gardens Co. The location, near the southbound lanes of I-5 and the pedestrian bridge, consists of residential and greenhouse debris and infrastructure associated with a first-generation Japanese American family. This is the second year at the site. The project has been covered by several local news outlets, including:
- Seattle Times: Unearthing Japanese American history at a dig site in North Seattle
- Asian American News: Archaeologists dig for Japanese American history in North Seattle
- KING-TV: Archeological dig revealing Japanese American history in north Seattle
The story was also covered by KOMO-TV and KOMO Newsradio, and a story on KUOW radio is expected to be broadcast later this month.
Congratulations to all the students, faculty and staff involved in this important work!
