Reverand Paul Carter and Professor Doug Armstrong on the steps of the Harriet Tubman House

‘An Incredible Endeavor’


Professor Douglas Armstrong and his undergraduate students discovered the remains of a historically significant building at the Harriet Tubman Home in Auburn, N.Y.

Their find in the early 1990s led to an enduring relationship and a longstanding archaeology field study course in which students unearthed over 70,000 artifacts that have shed new light on Tubman's later years.
