Boy Scouts: Archaeology Merit Badge
Our apologies - Online registration for the boy scouts workshop is currently unavailable. Please call us at 773.702.9507 if you would like to register for one of these workshops. Our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience.
Earn your Archaeology Merit Badge at the Oriental Institute! Items that are required to be completed prior to the badge workshop can be found below. Badge certification available upon evidence of completion of all badge requirements.
Items for your scout to complete prior to the workshop and bring with him to the workshop:
1. Learn about three archaeological sites located within the US. Be sure to include information on how the site was discovered, information that has been found at that site, and how this answers archaeologists' questions about the past and write it down as evidence of completion. Choose one of these sites and create a short presentation about your findings to give to a small group at the workshop.
2. Make and bring a time capsule of items you would want future archaeologists to find. Please substitute any valuable items with pictures or drawings of those items, as other people at the workshop will be handling and analyzing your time capsule.
3. Bring a description of what you would expect to find at an archaeological site left by American Indians, settlers, or soldiers who used to live in your area.
