The project equally explores both the 19th and the 20th centuries and involves not only archaeology but also archival, oral historic and ethnographic research.Those who attend the session will learn that archaeology is not just about what you find, but what you find out.
Museum doors will open at 12:30 p.m. Admission is $2.00, and refreshments will be served. Ample free parking is nearby.
