'The Archaeology Roadshow'

In celebration of Archaeology Week 2012, the 'Archaeology Roadshow' is making its way to classrooms in the Kingston area.  The program is hosted by Gord Sly, a retired teacher and Director on the Foundation's Board of Directiors, and provides students and teachers with the oppotunity to particiapate in a hands-on archaeological activity in their own classrooms.  In the one hour program students methodically and carefully 'dig' for artifacts, clean them, piece them together, and record their findings. After they excavate the students analyze the items they have found and draw some conclusions as ‘archaeologists.’

The Archaeology Roadshow was just featured in Tuesday's edition of the Kingston Whig Standard and can be found online at
