In this 45 minute, story-guided session you will create your own excavation and explore the hidden items our characters left behind. With the aid of real archaeologists, together you’ll build a story of how people occupied your landscape through time. Did they experience drought or flooding? How did they fare during times of war? See how your landscape layers build-up, and what they can tell us about being sustainable and human impact through time. Afterward, you will take home your excavation and can uncover your hidden treasures.
