The Connecticut State Museum of Natural History and Connecticut Archaeology Center at UConn will hold a weeklong archaeology field school for kids from Monday, June 26 through Friday, June 30, 9 am to 12 noon.

Do you like uncovering evidence to solve mysteries? Do you like getting your hands dirty exploring the outdoors? Spend a week with UConn archaeologists exploring the world of field archaeology. You will learn about the science, tools, and methods used by genuine archaeologists and be part of a real archaeological field crew. Participants will be doing hands-on fieldwork and laboratory research at a professional, ongoing archaeological dig. We have been opening new areas of our on-campus dig site each year, and every session we uncover something new.

The program fee is $225 ($200 for Museum members/donors) and advance registration is required. This program is open to students entering grades 5 through 10. For further information visit or call 860-486-4460.
