Plans for Exhumation and Asylum Hill Cemetery Field School

In 2018, the Mississippi Legislature passed legislation which allows UMMC to proceed with exhumation and relocation of the remains on the UMMC campus. Efforts are currently underway to find funding to begin archaeological work and to establish an archaeological field school where undergraduate students can work on the project and get credit through their home school.

Plans for the Archaeological Field School are still in the early phases. Please email Lida Gibson for current information about those plans.
