What happens at an archaeological dig? Learn about the science, field techniques, tools, and cultural aspects of archaeology from Registered Professional Archaeologist Mandy Ranslow. 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 historic mysteries and if you don’t mind getting your hands dirty, then this is the activity for you!
