A dark period in our history is unearthed. Dr. Stacey Lynn Camp, Assistant Professor of Anthropology at the University of Idaho, is conducting research at Northern Idaho's Kooskia Internment Camp, a World War II Japanese Internment Camp.
The project began in the summer of 2010, when Dr. Camp and her team of faculty, post-doctoral, graduate, and undergraduate researchers performed preliminary archaeological research at Kooskia, including geophysical survey, soil resistivity studies, shovel testing, phosphate analysis, and collection of macrobotanical soil samples to determine the location, extent, integrity, and contents of historic gardens and personal effects from the camp's internees and employees.
