Art and Archaeology Bootcamp

Art & Archaeology Bootcamp is a hands-on two-week art program and archaeology dig for two groups of children, 8 to 10 year olds, and 11 to 14 year olds. Be ready to get dirty as you learn to survey the site, excavate and sift soil to uncover artifacts, track daily progress, map and record findings. Continue your research and explore local history as you create models and projects that illustrate your findings. Follow clues left by the artifacts to identify the found objects, how the object was used and by whom.
