Professor Armitage Spends a Week Collecting Archaeological Rock Art Samples from Cuban Caves. This summer, EMU facutly member, Dr. Ruth Ann Armitage was invited to Cuba where she collected rock art samples from the walls of several caves. The samples have been returned to EMU where the age of the paintings can be determined, allowing them to be properly attributed to the ancient inhabitants of the island who painted them.

Eastern Michigan University is located in Ypsilanti,MI, which is adjacent to Ann Arbor, the home of the University of Michigan. This proximity allows for active collaborations between faculty and students from both schools and access to additional facilities. Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, and the surrounding townships make up a metropolitan area of over 300,000 people with ample cultural, recreational, and sporting events year-round. The cities of Detroit (30 miles away) and Toledo (40 miles away) are also within easy driving distance. However, one need travel only a short distance out-of-town to find farmland and open countryside. Nearby opportunities for outdoor recreation, such as boating, fishing, hunting, and skiing, are plentiful.
