This fall the Peabody Museum-directed excavation continues in Harvard Yard, and as the holes get deeper, the anticipation builds. The area is close to the location of Harvard’s Indian College, chartered in 1650. Diana Loren, who led the summer student dig with Hodge says, “Hopefully we’ll learn more about life at 17th-century Harvard, including Native and Anglo students. That’s the story we want to illuminate.”
