Intro to Archaeology & Simulated Dig

We are monitoring our operations to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and will adjust as needed. For more details on our response to COVID-19 please click this banner.

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.
