Join us for a day and night of exploration as we spend the day looking at artifacts found at Fort McKavett during the archaeological digs done since the 1970’s. Take on the work of an archaeologist in our mock dig! Find and record artifacts using tools and instruments to learn more about the soldiers and citizens of Old Fort McKavett. See the amazing finds of stones, glassware, metal buttons and fragments, and much more. Stay with us or come back after dusk and gaze upon the heavens with the Johnson Space Center Astronomical Society as they use their high-powered telescopes to reach into and beyond the stars!
