Each summer the York County Heritage Trust partners with the York County Department of Parks and Recreation to offer two sessions of Archaeology Week. Students ages 10-13 are exposed to the basics of archaeology first-hand as they participate in actual excavations at real archaeological sites. Campers also learn about how artifacts are preserved and interpreted in a museum setting with visits to Trust sites and museums. TheTrust runs programs during each session to educate participants about the relevant history and time period highlighted at each dig site.
Archaeology Weeks 1 &2, scheduled for July 15-19 and July 22 -26 respectively, will be held at a Penn Park, site of a former Civil War Hospital.
Registration for Archaeolgoy Weeks 1 & 2 is now open to members of the Trust and York County Parks.
Registration for non-members will open on Feb. 4.
