Stones and Bones II
On Tuesday, February 21, a favorite event was reinvented for the indoors as children in grades 1-5 were invited to explore archaeology related activities with their families by becoming archaeologists themselves with a small-scale excavation! Thirteen youngsters were taught the basics of archaeology and then proceeded to prepare their own mini-exhibit of their findings during a fun-filled afternoon.
