Archaeology Field School

Due to continued concerns over COVID-19 this event is being reevaluated. Notifications of decisions on these events will be made in a timely manner. Please check this page for updates – July 21, 2020

July 27th – July 30th 6pm – 8pm

The Castle’s Archaeology Field School is geared for high school age students and adults. This week-long experience will begin with introductory discussions and hands-on activities regarding the goals and methods of modern archaeology. Field work activity will be at a moderate pace that can be geared to the preference of each participant. We will be excavating a real archaeological site, processing the recovered artifacts, and discussing what they tell us about past human activity. This is a great opportunity for adults and students to participate in an archaeology project lead by professional archaeologist Wes Clarke.

Space is limited. Pre-Registration is required by July 20th.

$50 per Individual

In light of COVID-19, our Archaeology Field School is currently planning to be held on-site. As this camp serves a smaller number of campers, the museum will be able to work within social distancing mandates and best practices to provide a safe, educational experience.

For more questions or for more information, please contact our Education Director Kyle Yoho at education@mariettacastle.org.

Please note: Should camp need to be cancelled due to the continued COVID-19 concerns, notification and refunds will be issued in a timely manner.
