Jazz Host/We Live Up Here Contributor

Ardis Berghoff is a freelance writer and editor who lives in the Northwoods. She writes about business, the arts and culture for a living. She's also been an avid jazz fan ever since her dad played recordings of Dick Buckley's radio show for the family on Sunday afternoons when she was growing up.

Ardis has a bachelor's degree in English from Vassar College (Poughkeepsie, NY) and studied journalism at Northwestern University (Evanston, IL).


Archaeology in the Northwoods is different than it is downstate, and it can serve as a window into the everyday lives of former Northwoods residents.

As part of WXPR's We Live Up Here series, Ardis Berghoff has the story.

When most people think of archaeology, the discovery of ancient civilizations in places like Egypt, Greece or Peru come to mind. But archaeologists work in the Northwoods, too.
