Elliot Park community dig is this weekend


More than a dozen archaeologists and other volunteers are set to start digging in an Elliot Park vacant lot on Friday and Saturday, Aug. 6-7.

Kent Bakken, a University of Minnesota doctoral student in archaeology, is spearheading the project to foster a neighborhoodwide sense of shared history. The diggers will excavate remains of a homestead from the late 1800s at 911 Portland Ave., now a sliver of gravel between the former Artcraft Press Building and the Rappahannock Flats.
