Event Details

 

Archaeology Works: Mounds and Middens

What’s the best way to learn about a person, whether they lived thousands of years ago or today? Look through their garbage of course! Archaeologists study prehistoric trash piles or middens to gain a wealth of information about the past. They also investigate purpose built mounds that still dot the Florida landscape in order to learn about prehistoric societies. Learn the difference between a mound and a midden, and the archaeology of Weedon Island, in this fun and hands-on workshop.


Recommended for all ages
