Heritage Archaeology

Revealing IU’s Earliest Cultural Landscapes through Heritage Archaeology

Funded by the Indiana University Bicentennial, this project is a collaboration among the GBL, Wylie House Museum, Anthropology Department, and IU Archives and Libraries to delve into IU’s cultural heritage by exploring the buried house gardens at the home of first university president Andrew Wylie. Using field and laboratory technologies, including specialized mapping, remote sensing and excavation, our three-year project combines an archaeological field school with internships, talks, exhibits, presentations, and outreach across the campus and throughout the Bloomington community. Future publications and products will contribute to a better idea about how the development of an academic community dovetailed with the rise of Bloomington as a city.
