Students from the University of Exeter and Augustana University will be joining us for the annual Summer Archaeology Field School beginning June 13th. Visitors can watch as the excavation of this 1,000 year old Native American village continues. The dig ends July 12th, so be sure to plan your visit to our site! The annual dig is an exciting time for all of us - we never know what secrets lie beneath the soil... The photo above is of a bison skeleton uncovered during the dig last year. This was a most unusual find at our site.
Your support is important to the 1,700 schoolchildren who visit our site each year!
