The correct way to dig in sandpiles is the latest course given by the University, complete with instruction and laboratory periods. The course is Anthropology 15a, a course in the field methods of Archeology.
The lab period consists of delving in a heap of sand to unearth a collection of bones previously planted there by an instructor. Once in a while the prospective ditch-diggers go farther afield for their exploits than their little piles of sand. Last spring, for instance, they excavated a colonial cellar in Concord.
Champion bone digger-upper is Henry Hornblower, Jr. '41 who has dug up more bones in more perfect condition in the accepted way than any of the other members of the course.
