Saginaw archeologist digs up 1893 Saginaw home

In the Cathedral District, a bag of Cheetos can make history make sense.

For Jeff Sommer, curator of archaeology at the Castle Museum of Saginaw County History, when Cheetos happen to pop up at his dig sites, they sometimes tell him stories other artifacts can’t.

Today, two bags of the snack — with buy-by dates from 1993 — were discovered in the same pile with 19th century brick, glass and nails at an archeological effort on South Jefferson and Holden that Sommer hopes paints a better portrait of the average Saginaw family, circa 1893.
