Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, (you know the rest) will keep an archaeologist from staying busy.  Below-average temperatures combined with rain and wind brought the Fort Missoula field school crew to the archaeology lab where students learned how to clean and catalog artifacts from last year’s field excavation at Fort Missoula.  The field school staff hopes to be back in the field by the end of the week after the weather clears.
