Program Description

This interactive program will guide students in the exploration of the field of archaeology and how it allows us to understand past inhabitants of an area. Students will learn the proper technique and methodology to be used while excavating a site, artefact analysis, and hypothetical testing. Through hands-on specimen exploration and activities, students will gain an understanding of their local environment and the clues it holds to early inhabitants and their way of life.
