Dr. Ethan Watrall and Dr. Lynne Goldstein featured in MSU Today for MSU.seum app

MSU Today featured an article about the collaboratively created mobile application MSU.seum that was created by MSU Anthropology professors Dr. Ethan Watrall and Dr. Lynne Goldstein. The free mobile app allows you to explore the archaeology and heritage of the university’s campus, and uses geopositioning to identify the user’s location. For example, if the user was between Linton Hall and MSU Museum, the app would point them to Saints’ Rest, the first dorm on campus. They would learn about the history of this building and the archaeological work that was done there as well.  The original design of the app began within the first Cultural Heritage Field School, and based on this first product Watrall and Goldstein decided to expand it. In the future, they hope to get funding to further develop MSU.seum to include a social aspect that would allow for communication and discussion online.
