2016 Excavations at the Rutherford B. H. Yates House Site
The Excavations at the Rutherford B. H. Yates House Site is a training excavation run by the Archaeology Department of Houston Community College. Since 2012, HCC archaeology students, under the guidance of professor Scotty Moore, Ph.D., and Robert Marcom, M.A. R.P.A., have been investigating the historic Freedmen's Town neighborhood, also known as Houston's Fourth Ward.
The Summer class of 2016 participated in this learning experience, gaining knowledge on techniques such as excavation, geophysical and topographic survey, field walking, and post-excavation processing.
