Brookside Digs! An Archaeology Experience | Kids Out and About Albany

Brookside Digs! An Archaeology Experience

Dig, discover, and learn with professional Archaeologists on the grounds of historic Brookside Museum. Objects found come from the 20th, 19th, 18th, and 17th centuries and will be displayed at the museum after the session.

Participants will work beside archaeologists from Hartgen Archaeological Associates to experience a full excavation – learning about research, digging and cleaning, and artifact analysis. This program brings together science, mathematics, social students and presentation skills into one unforgettable experience. Findings from the excavation will help clarify the county’s past and will be added to the collection. This is a special opportunity to learn about archaeology and local history in an interesting and interactive way.
