Spring Break Camp Dig It!
April 13 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
Brand new Camp Dig-It program for ages 7-12, based on the archaeology of Parris Island where the 1566 Spanish settlement of Santa Elena was located.
Participants will get an introduction to the field of archaeology and have the opportunity to learn about the past as they excavate and identify artifacts from dig boxes. Archaeologist Dwayne Pickett will lead you through two simulated excavations; one related to the colonial occupation of Parris Island and the other related to when the Spanish occupied the site. Participants will learn about life on Parris Island during these times periods and also be able to make and keep pottery like the Native Americans made, which was used by the Spanish at Santa Elena. Dress to get dirty.
Advanced registration through this website is strongly recommended since space will be limited.
Instructor: Dwayne Pickett
