Bill Gresens’ Archaeology Book Review for June 2015
Canyon Sacrifice by Scott Graham (three trowels)
Forty-something contract archaeologist Chuck Bender takes his new bride and her two young daughters on an "all-in-the-family" honeymoon camping trip to the Grand Canyon, only to be caught up in the nightmare kidnapping of his seven-year-old stepdaughter in this, the initial "National Park Mystery" by first-time mystery writer Scott Graham.
“2015 Volunteer Field Survey a Success!”
Great weather greeted the MVAC 2015 public field survey earlier this month at the Norskedalen Heritage Center, and surrounding fields overlooking Coon Creek.
