Dig into archaeology with hands-on investigations, simulations, and more. Our activities, along with a visit from archaeologist Ellie Moriarty, will provide an introduction to archaeology and prepare us for time spent at a working excavation site on June 13th.

SCHEP is organized through Castleton University and explores the relationships between people and the environment in the southern Lake Champlain area over thousands of years. Detailed instructions (directions, what to bring, etc.) will be provided at the museum on June 11. To learn more about SCHEP, visit: https://www.facebook.com/schep.research/
