Description

The Wright State University campus woods contain countless significant archaeological sites dating from at least 9500 years ago to the 20th century. Many of these sites are very well-preserved and represent important aspects of Ohio history and prehistory. In this paper, I provide a brief overview of these archaeological sites. I then discuss some potential threats to sites on campus and offer some steps that the university could take to preserve these important resources.
