Presented By: Fremont Indian State Park

This archaeological dig is a mock excavation designed to show how archaeologists find and recover artifacts and what can be learned from items we find in the ground. An archaeologist will supervise activity at two separate excavations. One is designed for children up to 12 years old; the other is intended for high school age to seniors! The adult excavation will be an accurate representation of a real archaeological dig using real artifacts. The survey, up to two hours in length, is intended for all ages and abilities and includes walking over a short distance through grass and light brush.

Events will be held outside, rain or shine. Wear suitable clothing, including hiking shoes and long pants. Bring your own snacks and water. Tools and equipment will be provided but you may also bring your own.
