Meet the Researcher:
Andrea Shiverdecker 
Senior Undergraduate @nkuedu 
Major: Anthropology Minor:Psychology 
As a non-traditional student, returning to school opened my eyes to possibilities I had never imagined could be possible, such as being able to work on the Parker Academy REU NSF! I love taking photos of the beautiful archives and sharing them with the rest of the world! I love the excitement when you flip open a new box or page to see something absolutely lovely before you....... that sends you down a worm hole of research, taking you somewhere you least expected. Always an adventure! Thank you to all of our followers for checking out our adventures in research...... so much more to come! #anthropology #archaeology #history #parkeracademy #nsf #ohiohistory #kentucky #nku #meettheresearcher #historicalarchive #digitalcurator

Meet the Researcher!
Alex Weber is a senior undergraduate majoring in History. The special topic she is most interested in is the effects of the Cold War is South and Southeast Asia. Her favorite thing about the project is when the team finds information that can connect to things that the team found earlier to create a more thorough historic perspective. (Alex has also been a gem of a partner to work with as well, and for that, has made my experience working with the archives top notch!~digital curator note❤️) #parkeracademy #nku #history #anthropology #historicalarchiving #nsf #research #ohio #ohiohistory #kentucky #kentuckyhistory #archaeology

The most amazing aspect of the Parker Academy NSF REU is sharing our research and findings with local students such as this experience with Hughes High School. Researcher Sage Boyers shows the students artifacts from previous archaeological digs conducted at the Parker Academy site....... Don’t worry, we will be conducting another dig this May that you all will get to follow! #parkeracademy #anthropology #archaeology #history #nsf #civilwar

The impact of the invention of photography changed how history is recorded. The rapidly progressing technology becomes even more apparent as our journey through the archives beautifully displays how this invention impacted our world and history greater than many realize. #parkeracademy #nku #history #civilwar #photography #19thcentury #anthropology #ohiohistory #ohio
Looking at the shiny reflection of this example of 19th century photography, what type of method of early photography do you think was used? #history #photography #civilwar #anthropology #historicalarchiving #parkeracademy #nku #ohiohistory
Meet the Researcher!!!
Abigail Brueggemeyer is a senior undergraduate majoring in both History and Anthropology. She has been with Parker since the initial excavation in t he Summer of 2015. She is interested in Mortuary Archaeology and Osteology, and hopes she can return to Europe to study. Her favorite part about working in the archives is that she gets to put the story behind the artifacts that have been uncovered at the site. #nku #anthropology #history #civilwar #parkeracademy

Ambrotype is a positive photograph on glass made by a variant of the wet plate collodion process. Like a print on paper, it is viewed by reflected light. Like the prints produced by a Polaroid camera, each is a unique original that could only be duplicated by using a camera to copy it. Many are seen protected in elaborately detailed protective cases and were tinted by hand, as in the case of this example. Over the next week, we will be sharing many beautiful examples of these types of photos along with other various types and forms of 19th century photography. #anthropology #history #nku #civilwar #ohiohistory #parkeracademy

Meet Greg Roberts! This Ohio Native and historian bought the property of the Clermont County Parker Academy with a dream of preserving its history. Without this man’s efforts, the site of the Parker Academy could have been nothing more but a distant memory. #history #clermontcountyohio #parkeracademy #civilwar #archive

Fancy dress parties were common place during the civil war. These were the ladies of Shephardson College. #history #civilwar #parkeracademy #archives
For both Union soldiers and civilians during the Civil War, letters were the link that kept families and friends connected. Letters were written on every type of paper from scraps to fine stationery. But the war’s most interesting writing paper was letterhead displaying patriotic images supporting the war effort. #parkeracademy #history #archives #anthropology #civilwar #ohio #ohiohistory #civilwarhistory
The Parker Academy is believed to be the first school of its kind in the United States to offer fully integrated classrooms open to all races, religions, and genders. Founded by James and Priscilla Parker in 1839, the small college preparatory academy was a beacon of light and tolerance during one of America’s darkest hours. #parkeracademy #history #discoveringhistory #archiving #historicalarchives #behindthearchives #anthropology #ohio #ohiohistory
