What happens at an archaeological dig? Learn about the science, tools, and cultural aspects of archaeology, as well as proper archaeological field techniques and data management from Mandy Ranslow, Friends of the Office of State Archaeology board member and KAST Field School Archaeologist. Participants will be part of a real archaeological field crew, doing hands-on fieldwork at a genuine, ongoing archaeological dig at UConn. Findings at the site add important information to our understanding of Connecticut’s rich historic past. If you like to solve mysteries by uncovering evidence and if you don’t mind getting your hands dirty, then this is the activity for you!
