Can You Dig It? Youth Archaeology Camp Session 3


AGES 12 & 13

This summer join our team of archaeologists to explore local archaeology. Our region is filled with human history… over 15,000 years of human history and these camps are your student’s ticket to exploring that history and archaeology.

Our Base Camp located in Lawrenceburg Indiana is where we start exploring our region’s past. Our camps focus on hands-on educational activities that are STEM integrated, where campers work side-by-side professional archaeologists in the field and in the lab. Campers also explore native plants, visit other archaeological sites, hike local archaeological site that demonstrate the concept of place, do experimental archaeology (like learning to use an atlatl and make pottery), learn about anthropology, and create their own research plans with a presentation to the public (parents, ARI staff, and field school students) at the end of the week.

Participants leave with an understanding of the importance of preserving archaeological sites, what information archaeologists can learn from excavations

The event is finished.

The Archaeological Research Institute (ARI) recognizes that the land we study and steward is the homeland of many peoples. We acknowledge the myaamia (Miami), Shawanwa (Shawnee), Peewaalia (Peoria), Kiikaapoi (Kickapoo) and the multitude of nations who call this their homelands.  

ARI recognizes the violence inflicted upon the indigenous Nations of the Ohio Valley, including their forced removal following treaties such as Fort Finney and Greenville. ARI condemns the intentional destruction of their languages and cultures. ARI condemns the continuous discrimination against the living Native peoples throughout the United States.  

ARI recognizes that these peoples are not of the past, but are vibrant living nations. ARI recognizes that Native Americans are a diverse, resilient people with a deep enduring history worth knowing.  In that light ARI extends our respect to all Native peoples both past and present.
