Digging up the Past: Utilizing Artifacts to Better Understand the Battle of Bunker Hill
Sponsored by Boston National Historical Park

Bunker Hill Monument Grounds and Bunker Hill Museum
43 Monument Square
Boston, MA 02129
United States

Third through fifth graders discover and recover battle site artifacts to understand the Battle of Bunker Hill.  Students first use a cyclorama to visualize the historic battle and the differences between an historic site and a modern day dig site.  Students then work in stations reflective of specific areas of the battle, and “dig” for artifacts using proper techniques and tools.  They record and present their findings within the historic framework of the Battle of Bunker Hill.

Date/Time is ongoing by reservation or request.
