Science and history unite in this exciting program. Students become archaeologists as they search for artifacts and excavate a mock pit with the tools and techniques used in archaeology.  Students collaborate to piece together artifacts in the field lab station. In the house museum they explore building archeology via a series of trap doors which reveal 300 years of history at the farm.  Sessions are two hours in duration.


Weekdays throughout October, 9am-4pm

Admission: Students: $6, Teachers: Free
