Discover!?Hands-on Workshop in Archaeology, Geology & the Environment
A Discover series program combining earth science, geology and history. Students explore the secrets of a 200-year-old homestead and how its environment influenced early settlers. Offered in partnership with Little Antietam Creek, Inc. (LACI). Students join Institute educators and LACI archaeologists to “dig into the past” at historic Stoner Farm—digging and working with artifacts, scientific testing of the properties of limestone and soil, using remote sensing, learning how limestone is cut and mortar is made, and more. Space is limited; pre-register at 717-762-0373 or via email at email@example.com. For ages 10–17. Fee: $20 for Institute members, $25 general public.
