Recently, Miron crews uncovered more than just dirt while digging at a University of Iowa project site. While installing a chilled water line outside the Iowa Memorial Union, workers found historical artifacts dating back to the early- to mid-1800s. These artifacts, which range from pieces of pottery to limestone structures, are helping to shed light on life in the area during a time state and local historians know little about.
Miron helped set-up tents to protect the site, and the archeologists working onsite, from the weather; and we are providing temporary heat for the dig. While we are eager to get back to work on the IMU project, it has been exciting to watch the dig unfold and help uncover the history of a city.
