Archaeology Field Schools

November 7, 2019

In 2020, the University of Montana’s School of Anthropology will be sending students on a field school excavation of a pit house occupied for 17 generations in British Columbia by the Bridge River Indian band. Meanwhile, graduate students are in the lab processing findings from the field school conducted at the Moon-Randolf historical homestead over the summer of 2019.

Doctoral candidate Nikki Manning led the field school over the summer. Manning took UM News on a tour of the homestead and discussed some of the findings from the site, as well as giving us a close-up look at how archaeologists process artifacts and other findings. Manning says that while the work done with the Bridge River band will be physical, much of the School of Anthropology’s work with local Native American groups involves oral and written histories.

November 7, 2019

In this story Griffin Rerucha tells us a little bit about the new space opening up in the UC. Co-director of the Innovation factory Brad Allen says this spot was created so students could chase their dreams in an environment with all the resources necessary. This new space will do tutorials on how to use tools like laser cutters, 3D printers and more. After completion of these classes you can get a badge that says you know how to use this piece of equipment. The Innovation Factory is located above the bookstore in the UC and is open now.

The university will host multiple blood drives through November. The next one is set for  November 12th.

Imagine Nation Brewing and Recycling Works

November 6, 2019

One um alum is getting is putting their environmental degree to work at imagine nation brewing. Ian finch, the community engagement coordinator, helped orchestrate an event with recycling works where community members could drop off their glass bottles. Finch says the work he does through Imagine Nation helps to encourage a dialog amongst patrons.

“When it comes to sustainability and environmentalism it takes a lot of introspection and a lot of personal change. We are all in this ship together, and so it is about having dialog about what we need and short comings that Missoula still has and you should do it in a very peaceable sort of way where we can actually make it happen as a community.”

Finch said one way community members can be more environmentally conscious is by buying locally and ethically sourced products.

Imagine nation will be hosting a craft’s fair in mid-December which will feature locally made items such as jewelry and cleaning soaps.
