Excavations Underway

Last week we had our very first group of eager middle schoolers take shovel and trowel to our newly constructed simulated dig site. Excavate!, one of the spring break camps offered here at the Western Center, aimed to teach the proper techniques, procedures and ethics involved in archaeology. From field surveys to 1x1's and lab research our first group did wonderfully and seemed to have a great time too! Our first camp went off without a hitch and we look forward to many more to come.

Please contact the Western Center for Archaeology & Paleontology at (951) 791-0033 if you would like to get involved in excavations at our simulated dig site!
