|Archaeologist's tools & jar with sample stratigraphy|
|Workshop Classroom setup with clipboards for artifact analysis|
During the day I held a workshop explaining what archaeology is and what archaeologists do. I gave a brief cash course in soil science, stratigraphy, and the basics of excavation; then the students got the opportunity to practice artifact analysis as well as clean real artifacts. It was a lot of fun working with budding archaeologists!
Here is a link to the local newspaper that tells a little more about the event.
