LIMIT OF 25 PARTICIPANTS HAS BEEN REACHED AND REGISTRATION FOR THIS CLASS HAS BEEN CLOSED. A SECOND ENVIRONMENTAL ARCHAEOLOGY CLASS HAS BEEN SCHEDULED FOR OCTOBER 26.

Come explore the archaeological remains on the Blue Ridge Center property with archaeologist Jeffrey Alvey and learn how biological remains from archaeological sites are used to understand ancient environments.  Come learn how archaeologists answer questions about the past like which trees, herbs, vegetables, and flowers that ancients saw around them?  Which animals lived nearby and which did they hunt or keep as pets? And where did they find clay for their pottery or stone to make their tools with?  Jeffrey has worked as a professional archaeologist for over seven years during which time he has studied the ancient American Indian cultures of the southeastern US as well as the ancient cultures of Israel, and the greater Middle East. Recommended Ages: 7 - 14 yrs. old, parents are also welcome. Limited to 25 participants.

This program is presented for free thanks to support from The North Face.
