The Fort Lane Heritage Site, only about 25 miles from the SOU Ashland Campus, is planned to become a new public state park. Listen as Professor of Anthropology, Dr. Mark Tveskov, and Oregon Parks and Recreation Regional Manager, Curtis Smith, describe the importance of the partnership between SOU and OPRD in making this new park a reality.
It’s also important to mention the students working at the dig site are part of a summer field class at SOU. One of the benefits of studying anthropology at SOU is the chance to do hands-on field work at various sites around our region. Learn more about anthropology at SOU.
