April 22-23, 2015
The Seventh Wake Forest Archaeology Student Research Symposium was held April 22-23, 2015. Twelve students from ANT 315 (Artifact Analysis and Laboratory Methods in Archaeology) presented their original research projects in professional poster format. Seven faculty members and 53 undergraduate archaeology students attended the event and discussed the archaeological research problems. The projects presented included reconstructing past environments using sediments, understanding Archaic stone tool resharpening strategies, geochemical sourcing of Roman mosaic tiles, heat transmission and grip-ability of net-impressed ceramic wares, and recovering prehistoric Late Woodland butchering strategies from animal bone assemblages.
