“Mock Archaeological Excavation Site” Photos

Since 1985, Professor Louis Flam, an archeologist in the Lehman College Anthropology Department, has been excavating a five-acre mound that sits thirty-five feet over the surrounding flood plain at Ghazi Shah, in the mountainous desert of Pakistan’s Sindh province. It is, among other things, a link to the long-vanished Indus Civilization, which flourished more than four thousand years ago, between 2600 and 1900 B.C.E. With this tremendous amount of experience, Professor Flam teaches Lehman students archeological techniques on a mock excavation site on campus.
