Outdoor Adventure Camp Digging Public Archaeology!


Public Archaeology is getting more volunteers this summer than ever before! And last week we had an outdoor adventure camp from Bowie help us dig out in the field. There were about 12 pre-teen/teenage volunteers, along with several counselors. The campers were introduced to the site by Mr. Ed Chaney himself and were then brought to the screens to sift through the plowzone soil. Almost every volunteer was handed a shovel and gladly took turns digging in their group’s unit. The campers were new to archaeology but quickly became interested and asked great questions. Seth, one of the counselors, discovered an almost whole quartz projectile point… great find! The summer sun certainly energized these campers and we enjoyed their company and hard work!
