This program will sharpen students’ historical inquiry, analysis, and interpretation skills by conducting a miniature archaeological dig based on the methods and vocabulary of archaeological science. Artifacts contain clues to their manufacture, date of origin, and use. To decipher the clues one needs to ask questions about the size, shape, color, material, and decoration of the artifact. After participants learn these basic skills, we will then use them in a real archaeological dig at the Shirley-Eustis House. Rain date is Saturday, October 12. Grade-specific learning for Grade 3 through diploma, but informative and engaging for all learners. Please call or email to make a reservation for this event.
Admission: Adult: $5, Student: $4
