STURGIS — From sewing needles and shoe eyelets to alcohol bottles and tin cans, the excavation of Soap Suds Row near Sturgis has revealed a plethora of artifacts from a bygone era.

A professionally-led archaeological excavation, which began Saturday, Sept. 3, explored an area north of Highway 34 near the present-day Fort Meade campus which was once used by the laundresses for the old cavalry post.
