Adult Excavation Days
June 6 & September 12, 2015


Our day programs, running from 9am to 4pm on Saturday June 6 or September 12, are perfect for adults who have always been interested in experiencing archeology. You’ll explore an ancient American Indian community at our 2000 year-old village site and process artifacts that you excavated.


Tuition: $50 per person.

Who May Enroll: Participants must be 18 years or older. This is a great program for adults of all ages!

Is This Program Right For Me?: This program is for adults interested in archeology. Although less intensive than our Adult Field School, you will excavate at an archeological site and conduct laboratory analyses. It’s a great way to engage your inner archeologist while working along side professionals in the field! Preview the tentative schedule for Adult Excavation Day.
