ArchaeoBus visit

Huge thanks to the more  than 200 people who stopped by to visit the ArchaeoBus and try our archaeology activities! We also want to thank all of our fabulous volunteers:

  • Rita and Scott for bringing the ArchaeoBus to campus and putting in a long day with the sand gnats.
  • Jonathan McKellar, for having class at the ArchaeoBus
  • Anthropology Club volunteers: Autumn, Casey, Reuben, Jennifer (for organizing volunteers), and especially Richard, who also put in a long day.  Please let me know if I forgot someone!
  • and Leslie, who brought great activities for our littlest archaeologists and got the word out to the home school network.

Armstrong students loved making Native American masks- a craft originally meant for our young home school students!

Even the tiniest archaeologists love the ArchaeoBus!
