The Connecticut State Museum of Natural History will hold an archaeology field workshop on Saturday, October 25, 9 am to 11:30 am. The activity “Archaeology Field Workshop – Learning The Basics,” will be led by Mandy Ranslow, President of the Friends of the Office of State Archaeology (FOSA).

What happens at an archaeological dig? Learn about the science, field techniques, tools, and cultural aspects of archaeology from professional archaeologist Mandy Ranslow. Participants will be part of a real archaeological field crew, doing hands-on fieldwork at a genuine, ongoing historic house excavation at UConn. Findings at the site add important information to our understanding of Connecticut’s rich historic past. If you like to solve historic mysteries and don’t mind getting your hands dirty, then this is the activity for you!

The program fee is $20, $15 for Museum members, which includes a materials fee. Advance registration is required. This program is for adults and children ages 10 and above. Children must be accompanied by an adult. For further information visit or call 860.486.4460.
