Hillsboro student part of archaeological dig

Sophomore Jakob Hanschu of Hillsboro is among 12 Kansas State University students spending this month excavating two archeological sites near Manhattan.

Hanschu, an anthropology and geology major, is a part of an every-other-year field school sponsored by K-State and the University of Kansas to investigate what life was like in Kansas hundreds of years ago. From June 6 through July 1, the school is investigating Native American life along Wildcat Creek near Manhattan. So far, it has uncovered spear, dart, and arrow points and knives from a culture dating to 700 to 1,100 years ago.
