Archaeologists learn about cultures from the past by studying the objects they left behind. In 1,000 years, what objects will archaeologists study in order to understand our culture? In this workshop, we will draw future archaeological sites, thinking about what objects we use today will be preserved in the ground for 1,000 years. The crusts of bread from your sandwich probably won’t stand the test of time, but the rubber sole of your shoe might. What inferences could an archaeologist make about you and your culture based on a shoe, and some buttons, and maybe a pair of glasses found in an old bedroom? Register by July 27.

Ages 9 & up; open to Maine youth; maximum 15 attendees.
