Play-Dig-Learn!

Let’s help prehistory come to life for kids! Especially for that purpose we have constructed an archaeological pit for kids to learn the purpose of archaeology—and to have a good time! The pit is based on real-life archaeological excavations from the minoan time period.

When a group of children comes to dig with us, we take the time to help them understand what an archaeologist does and how he or she works. We teach archaeological techniques and explain why excavating is done in a specific way. As they dig, we supervise their progress, helping them to understand each step’s purpose. Using a combination of minoan artifacts and fossils buried in the sand, we help our junior archaeologists reconstruct history!
