News Sentinel: UT students dig for artifacts at historic Marble Springs

An article in the News Sentinel accompanied Barbara Heath, an assistant professor in anthropology, and her class on an archaeology dig over the weekend. The group traveled to South Knoxville to do excavation work at Marble Springs, the home of former Tennessee Gov. John Sevier. Heath said the class examines archaeology from the colonial period to the present. The group is conducting an extensive archaeological survey of Marble Springs to see if they can glean any additional information about the area or Sevier’s life, from 1745 to 1815.
