The Marquette Regional History Center presents:
“Working as Though For Their Self”:
The Archaeology of Cordwood Choppers’ Everyday Life
Wednesday, June 1, 6:30 p.m.
Join Dr. LouAnn Wurst, professor of Industrial Archaeology and Heritage program, Michigan Technological University, for this presentation. Archaeologists from MTU have excavated five sites occupied by cordwood choppers and their families who worked for Cleveland Cliffs Iron Company. These sites, currently in the Hiawatha National Forest, date from 1900-1935. The excavations recovered thousands of ceramic, bottle, and can fragments, animal bones, and many personal items which help us understand the choppers’ everyday life and how these camps changed over time. $5 suggested donation.
