Introduction to Archaeology

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

    Introduce your students to the exciting world of archaeology.  This program addresses what it means to be an archaeologist, who owns archaeological sites, and why and how we protect them. Students work hands-on with real artifacts and a diversity of cultural materials.  Favorites are assembling a real bison, deer or alpaca skeleton.
