UMass Boston Professor and Students Head for Iceland to Dig Into History

Adjunct Professor of Anthropology John Steinberg and a team of UMass Boston students will travel to within 60 miles of the Arctic Circle this summer, where they will search for answers to some long-standing questions about the country's history. Steinberg, the senior scientist at the Andrew Fiske Memorial Center for Archaeological Research, and his team will be in Skagafjördur, Iceland from June 23 through August 10, where they will use remote sensing equipment to uncover Geldingaholt and Stora Seyla, Viking farmsteads that date back to 1000 A.D.
