Cost: Members: $160.00 Non Members: $180.00
Co-sponsored with York County Parks and Recreation, this week of hard work, fun and education will get right down to earth! Students learn the concepts of doing archaeology by conducting actual excavations. Students will learn how to take notes, and catalog artifacts that can be displayed at historic institutions. Interwoven between excavations, special programs themed around the 1930’s will involve the introduction of electricity and radio broadcasting to rural York County. A public program to examine the excavations will be held on Thursday evening, beginning at 7pm. Registration can be done through the York County Parks and Recreation.
