WILMINGTON, NC (AP) - A professor at the University of North Carolina Wilmington wants to do some digging in a Brunswick County park for historic artifacts.
The StarNews of Wilmington reports (http://bit.ly/QQ7qRj) associate archaeology professor Eleanora Reber says she's often walked in the Brunswick River Park to search for historic artifacts.
Reber says she's found large pieces of pottery and now wants to do a more thorough, but small exaction at the park. She says Native Americans and European settlers always found land along the river attractive because of the fish and game nearby.
She says an archaeological survey would be a good learning experience for her students.
Reber sent a proposal to the county's parks and recreation department to see if she can get approval for a dig.
