Archaeologist Jeremy Nienow discussed some of the findings from recent archaeological digs at sites throughout Ramsey County in a taped interview hosted by Barry Madore. A project of the Metro County Historical Society Collaborative, a group of historical societies from throughout the Metro area including the Ramsey County Historical Society, the Maplewood Area Historical Society and others, this series of digs included Gibbs Farm and areas along Fish Creek. Members of the public were able to participate in unearthing findings and learning how archaeology is done. Dr. Nienow discussed some of the results and talk about how archaeology of this type can help shed light on Native Peoples and early historic settlement. Dr. Nienow was joined for a live discussion and Q&A by Bob Jensen of the Maplewood Area Historical Society.
