Educational Programs

The Foundation’s Educational Programs have been custom-designed by the staff with volunteers and in co-operation with the Queen’s University Faculty of Education Practicum program. All Foundation programs have been designed to provide a solid introduction to archaeology and its importance, and to develop an appreciation for the archaeology of Kingston and the surrounding area and the physical evidence it has uncovered.
