Associated Press News Story!

Archaeology on the Alley made the news again! See the story on The Philadelphia Inquirer Website (link expired, see update below).

In February, Associated Press reporter Kathy Matheson stopped by the Anthropology Lab at Temple University to check out the work we were doing.  She got a first hand glimpse of artifact processing, and we got a chance to talk about the project.  Earlier in January, Associated Press photographer Matt Rourke had snapped some photos as we were cleaning artifacts.   Working with everyone was a great experience, and we are very excited about the story!

The AP story has been picked up by several other online news outlets both near and far:

NBC Philadelphia
San Francisco Chronicle 
The York Dispatch 
Daily Local News (includes pictures)
Asbury Park Press (includes pictures) (Bucks County Courier Times, The Intelligencer, Burlington County Times)

UPDATE (October 2013): Unfortunately, several of the links to the AP stories have expired.  Copyright laws prohibit reproducing the story.
