Archaeology
Become an Excavator & Curator
Design a History-Themed Treasure Hunt

History as we know it today has its origins in events long gone. Manuscripts, artifacts and texts buried under the face of the earth over centuries have held key to understanding the past. Excavated wonders reveal aspects of life from yester-years that are otherwise lost in time.
In this Pathfinder learners explore the work of an Archaeologist. One learns how to perform the act of safe excavation and curation of artifacts. Documenting the discoveries becomes a fun task when the craft of model-making helps add a touch-and-feel element.
To bring the experience together learners create a Treasure Hunt for other groups to complete using principles of archaeology!
