During the fall of 2018, U-M Museum of Anthropological Archaeology faculty and undergraduate students conducted survey and excavations at Gordon Hall, the residence of Judge Samuel W. Dexter, located in Dexter, Michigan. The goals of this project were to identify the remains of architectural features and outbuildings demolished during the house’s multiple renovations. Both the northern wing of the house and the large, eight-seat privy were located during excavations. In this presentation, Martin Menz discusses the process of data recovery, results, and future directions for UMMAA fieldwork at Gordon Hall.

This lecture is sponsored by the Michigan Archaeological Society.
