About this Event

Educators will have the opportunity to participate in a half-day field trip that focuses on archaeological techniques and hands-on activities that can be integrated into their classroom instruction. The Fairfield Archaeology Park offers a unique setting for this program, as it showcases the ruins of the Fairfield House, built in 1694 and owned by one of the wealthier families in the Middle Peninsula, and an extensive historical site that spans from the colonial era to the 20th century. By combining archaeological and historical information, we can better understand the lives of all the people who lived on the Fairfield plantation, including landowners, servants, and the enslaved community and their freed descendants who lived on the landscape. It's essential to learn more about the past and the people who shaped it. Participants will enjoy site tours, an archaeological excavation, and a hands-on experience that will allow them to apply these principles in the classroom. We invite all interested educators to join us for this engaging and informative workshop and take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn from experienced professionals in the field of archaeology. Teachers may find it helpful to consider potential field trips or internship options for their students at Fairfield.
