The Boston Globe / Boston.com
An archeological project led by Harvard University's Peabody Museum is attempting to find the remains of the Harvard Indian College, established in Harvard's earliest years. Student Adam Kaplan (left) wheeled a sieve screen toward a series of archeological holes dug in an attempt to find 17th century relics from the Indian College. In Harvard's earliest years, the Indian College was the only brick building on a campus now famous for brick.
