Millie Hylka

Field Supervisor

University of Evansville, BA Archaeology

Millie Hylka is originally from Chicago, Illinois, and she graduated from the University of Evansville in 2020 with her bachelor’s degree in archaeology. While a student at the University of Evansville, she participated in an on-campus field school in an area known as Tin City, where there used to be housing for World War II veterans and their families from 1946 to 1961. She also had the opportunity to participate in a field school in Israel, where the students excavated a Bronze Age settlement known as Tel Jezreel. After these two field schools, Millie knew she enjoyed hands-on archaeological work, leading her to an internship at the CRA office in Evansville, Indiana, for her last semester of undergraduate studies. Due to the pandemic, Millie moved back to Chicago, but in 2022, Millie found her way back to CRA as a field technician at the Lexington office.


Apart from archaeology, Millie has numerous interests. She has a deep love for both dogs and the Twilight Saga. She also has a passion for reading; her preferred genres are rom-coms and fantasies. Millie loves to travel and explore new places. She’s traveled to Italy, Greece, France, and many more destinations. When in a new area, she loves to find little coffee shops and antique stores.
