The Archeology of POW Camp AuTrain at Marquette Regional History Center May 22nd

May 21, 2019

Marquette, MI – The Archeology of POW Camp AuTrain event will take place on May 22nd at 6:30 pm at the Marquette Regional History Center Gathering Hall.

In the summer of 2018 Dr. LouAnn Wurst led a team from Michigan Tech on site work at the former CCC Camp AuTrain, to research the use of the camp as a prisoner of war camp during WWII. In conjunction with the Hiawatha National Forest, this work will continue in 2019. Learn first-hand what is being found and conclusions Dr. Wurst has drawn at this presentation.

Dr. Wurst wrote an article for us in October 2018, published in the Mining Journal for the week of Archaeology Fair and it was very well received. Dr. Wurst is a Professor of Archaeology. She teaches at Michigan Tech University, and specializes in Historical and Industrial Archaeology, Archaeology of Capitalism, Class and Inequality, Marxist Theory, and Historic Preservation and Cultural Resource management.
