Intro to Archaeology & Simulated Dig

Ice Safety: Alberta Parks does not monitor ice conditions; learn how to assess them for yourself.

This full-day program combines "Introduction to Archaeology" with an archaeological excavation!  We discuss what it means to be an archaeologist, who owns archaeological sites, and why and how we protect them. Students  learn archaeological excavation techniques as they dig, record and interpret their finds at a simulated archaeological site.
