Adults and children had plenty to do as they toured part of an archaeological site where Native Americans lived from 1000 B.C. to A.D. 400. Visitors saw archaeologists excavating features and had a chance to get dirty themselves as they helped archaeologists water screen soil to recover artifacts for laboratory analysis. (Mom, bleach really does get those splatters out of Junior’s T-shirt!) Visitors not up to water screening could talk to archaeologists about recent discoveries. Large color posters detailing the site and archaeology supplemented these verbal descriptions. Visitors enjoyed walking around the site to complete clipboard activities such as the Post Hole Feature Test and the No-Collection Scavenger Hunt. Children’s activities under the tents were popular as young visitors tried their hands at making paddle-stamped pottery bowls and Swift Creek rubbings. Meanwhile, parents enjoyed gathering brochures and resource materials, and making inquiries at the Ask an Archaeologist table. Fresh air, fun, archaeology and learning…what better way to spend a beautiful Saturday?
