I was reading the site for the Cliff Mine Archeology Project and it seems like everything is off to a smooth start this summer.  The blog, which reports on the activities of the Michigan Tech Industrial Archaeology graduate program’s field school for 2011 at the Cliff Mine in the Keweenaw, has some great photos, field activities, and news related to the project.  The field school is offering tours of the Cliff Mine to discuss the heritage of the site and to outline goals of the field work.  The project recently got some press, with a spotlight on the TV6 news, the local affiliate in Marquette.  If you are interested to learn more about the Cliff Mine, the ruins, and the field school activities please be sure to  join one of the weekend site tours being offered in June.  Tours will be on Saturday and Sunday for the rest of June, starting hourly from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.  For more information about Cliff Mine tours and the field school, please check out the project website.
