Dig it! Archaeology Day this Saturday

“Exploring the Past Through Archaeology” is the theme Saturday, Oct. 14, on the grounds of the Greensboro History Museum.

The family-friendly event will be 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. It is hosted by the UNCG Archaeology program and the Greensboro History Museum

Enjoy hands-on activities, see casts of fossils and learn about ground-penetrating radar, very helpful in the field of archaeology.

Dr. Linda Stine notes that UNCG’s archaeology professors enjoy doing this for the community. And it’s excellent outreach experience for the UNCG students, whether they are making poster presentations about their personal research projects or fielding general questions.

“They are applying their classroom/lab knowledge outside the classroom and lab – gaining experience in public speaking and interaction while promoting UNCG and archaeology to students and kids and parents,” she said.

They are also showcasing UNCG Archaeology’s wide range of experience globally: Tanzania, Peru, the Southeastern United States, Greece, and former Roman provinces.
