The David Hudnell Fund for Archaeological Research
and Field School
was established in 1997. It was created to honor the memory of David Hudnell,
an Ohio University graduate in anthropology and archaeology who worked
with Dr. Elliot Abrams on archaeological field schools from 1986 until
his premature passing in 1996. Dave had a great love of archaeology and
Native American culture, and was instrumental in helping establish the
strong reputation of the O.U. field school.
The Hudnell Fund supports the operation of the archaeology field school.
All money is spend entirely on archaeological equipment or the analysis
of artifacts excavated during the field school. A recent book on the archaeology
of the Hocking Valley, titled The Emergence of the Moundbuilders: The
Archaeology of Tribal Societies in Southeastern Ohio, edited by Dr. Elliot
Abrams and Dr. AnnCorinne Freter, is based in
large part on the field school data and is dedicated to Dave for his significant
contribution to the archaeology of this area.
