Archaeologists for a Day


JPPM welcomed students from the Poolesville Magnet High School this week. The magnet high school’s Junior class volunteered at the Public Archaeology excavations, toured the Maryland Archaeological Conservation Laboratory, and visited the reconstructed Indian Village during their two day visit to the Park and Museum. Teachers from the magnet school were looking for opportunities to get students out of the classroom to see what kinds of interesting professions exist in the world and we were happy to oblige! They met staff members with backgrounds in history, anthropology, science, and art, and spoke with archaeologists, conservators, curators, and educators. The kids were enthusiastic and inquisitive and we look forward to working with them again next year when they return for another visit!
