This years “Digging through the Past”


A couple weeks ago seven campers (ages 9-11) took part in a week filled with archaeology! They spent the time with Martha Otto, recently retired OHS archaeologist at the Ohio Historical Center, learning about Native American tool and pottery making, the kinds of plants that were grown and how to excavate, screen, measure, map, collect, clean and draw artifacts.

They also took a day trip to Fort Ancient to see the Wright State University field school in action and had the opportunity to apply their new aquired screening skills and helped the workers look for artifacts.
