Dirt Detectives at Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm
Massachusetts: Newbury & North Shore
Students become archaeologists as they excavate a mock pit with actual tools of the trade and process (put together) reproduction artifacts in a field lab. Inside the museum, they explore building archaeology via trap doors. They analyze objects to learn about daily life at the farm over the last three hundred years.
