Student finds ancient artifact on University of Washington campus

Seattle, Washington (AP) 12-09

A University of Washington student recently made a surprising archaeological find on the Seattle campus. While doing some landscaping work near the botany greenhouse, the freshman dug up an ancient Indian artifact.

Ellen Van Wyk found a tan and red projectile point buried in the ground next to a chain link fence. After she found the artifact, archaeologists from the Burke Museum dug three test pits nearby and uncovered two more stone tool fragments.

The artifact found by Van Wyk is estimated to be between 4,000 and 6,700 years old. UW archaeologists says it is a significant and unusual find in the middle of the city.

But long before the UW was built, Native American people lived there for thousands of years.
