SCDNR: Mini Archaeology Excavation

June 22 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Mini Archaeology Excavation
by SC Department of Natural Resources
Saturday, June 22nd @10am
All Ages — FREE

Note: This is NOT a Cola City event.

Kids who participate in the Mini Archaeology Excavation Unit activity will excavate their own tabletop archaeology unit. They will pick away at the dirt until they find artifacts buried in the mini archaeology unit (a pre-made block composed of sand, plaster, and mock artifacts). During this activity participants will learn about the steps archaeologists take in the field during a real excavation, and how archaeologists analyze what they discover in the lab once they return from the field.

This program is for ages 4 – 18 years old, however, younger children can participate. All supplies for this hands-on activity are provided. The program will take place under a tent in the garden of Parker Annex Archaeology Center. Parents and guardians must remain with minors at all times.
