Carol Bacak-Egbo, Oakland University Professor, Historian and Project Advisor for Oakland County Parks, returns to discuss the outhouse located on the site of the historic Ellis Farmstead in Springfi eld Township, Michigan. Ever wonder why archaeologists go digging for old outhouses? Historic archaeologists have great interest in outhouses because they often contain artifacts of the past that people tossed either intentionally or accidentally down the deep, dark hole never to be seen again (so they thought). Learn more about how and why archaeologists would dig up the site of an old outhouse and what the Ellis Farmhouse dig revealed about local history! Kindly sponsored by Oakland County Parks
