Brookside Digs! An Archeology Experience

Dig on the grounds of historic Brookside Museum in search of actual artifacts from the 20th, 19th, 18th, even 17th centuries! The best artifacts each summer are displayed in the museum in a long-term exhibition.

Oh, the treasures buried deep and the stories they tell us about history. Best suited for ages 10-16, participants will work beside archeologists from Hartgen Archeological 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 archeology and local history in an interesting and interactive way.

2018 Dates: July 30-August 3. The week-long, 9am – 3pm, summer program is $250 per person or $300 for an adult/student team.
