Sunday, October 2, 2016 Archaeology Day
Similar to last year we hope to have an archaeological excavation in progress! Learn about tools and techniques used by professional archaeologists to see into the past. Get your hands dirty with some supervised digging and screening on site! Or, get your hands clean washing and sorting artifacts!
Learn how ancient arrowheads and stone tools were made with early technologist & expert flint knapper Barry Keegan.
There will be a archaeological presentation - to be determined. The final program will be released soon. Please check back often.

Eugene Boesch will discuss Forensic Archaeology. Forensic Archaeology is the application of archaeological methods to forensic – crime scene – work. The practice aids law enforcement in discovering human remains and in the collection of evidence. It includes the use of remote sensing technologies, human cadaver dogs, and traditional archaeology to aid in solving crime and bringing comfort to families. The talk will show the audience how important this aspect of archaeological science has become in the world of police work.
The presentation will be followed by our Holiday Party!
