Robert P. Carrolland John H. Reeves, haveparticipated in inddvidual and collectiveresearch in the field ofanthropology. Tthe fmits of tiheirindustry are located in the VMIMuseum of Anthropological History.Physical and Cultural findsare located on the bottom floorof the old two-Story structurewith research and storage facilitieslocated on the second floorand in tihe basement. Although thevast majority of the collection isthe- result of work done by ViMIp^ple, there are several exhibitson research loan from the VirginiaArcheological Society, theforemost of these being tthe Henry^Marshall collection.Few people ever have the opportunityto realize the excitementand reward of an anthropologicalfind. The experiences encounteredon a field expeditionor dig are difficalt to describe,but these are mild com-pared tofinal results that can be piec^together firom the discoveriesmade on the site. The nine feetof shells of the Conners-iMiddenexpedition is a case in point.The Conners-iMidden excavationsite_ is located in Halifax C5ounty,Virginia.

It has We»proven that, although converftionalclassii'oom work and asignimenitsteach a student facts, a true utiderstandingof any subject is onlyobtained through direct usageand experience. In anthropologythis involves getting, as "^Col.Reeves says, "dirt under yourfingernails."Since 1958 cadets have been unable,for a various numiber ofreasons to make any siginficant,oontributions to the collection, andthus to the world of anthropologicalresearch. They have also missedthe practical experience of adig. Much interest has been, voicedthis year in reviving the anthropologicalfield expedition. A site i.m the Gulf region,be most beneficial.
