 Do you like to dig in the dirt? Do you consider other people’s trash a potential treasure? Do you find yourself humming the theme song to Indiana Jones? This is the presentation for you!

This Forest Archaeologist will be on hand to talk about methods of excavating, snorkel recovery on the AuSable River and to tell many stories of the items from history that he has found throughout the years.

MICHIGAN ARCHAEOLOGY From Detroit to Copper Harbor and Ironwood to Drummond Island, archaeological sites reveal how people have lived in Michigan for nearly 14,000 years. Archaeology is the scientific study of the human past, using places and objects to understand changing people and environments. It is the study of sand dunes and forests, seas and cities, hardship and resourcefulness, ingenuity and innovation, and above all, communities. Across time and space, archaeology helps us know the past, understand the present, and plan for a sustainable and vibrant future.
