Let’s Have Our Own Archaeological Dig


Are you ready for an exciting adventure digging up artifacts in your own back yard? Learn archaeology the fun way by doing what archaeologists do. Children will love digging in the dirt for their artifact and taking it to the tent/lab for cleaning and preserving.

​In Let’s Have Our Own Archaeological Dig, specific instructions are given so that parents and teachers can create a dig site with several layers like a Tell. Children and teens mark off a grid before they dig. Carefully, artifacts are unearthed and sent to the lab for examination, cleaning, and marking. Where do the artifacts come from? We make them as part of our Ancient History craft time, but it’s just as easy to find broken pottery and other items around the house. Families and friends can make a lasting memory by planning and hosting their own archaeological dig?
