Archaeology is the study of objects made by humans in the past. These objects, sometimes uncovered centuries later, are called artifacts. Other objects we uncover under the earth are fossils, like Dinosaur bones! The study of fossils is called Paleontology.
At our office, which is often in the great outdoors, we work to uncover, collect, and preserve artifacts and fossils. Our public programs, like "Dig Days," are an opportunity for you to get your hands in the earth while learning valuable skills and uncovering history untouched for generations.
We can learn so much about the past from studying artifacts and fossils. We can piece together the history of humans and animals, we can understand how they once lived, and even find similarities and connections we can relate to today. Explore our different sites, let’s uncover untold stories, and we can learn and grow on this journey through time together!
