When I was about 12 years old, my mom discovered archaeologists were excavating and giving a tour of an old logging camp near Mountain, Wisconsin. At first I wasn’t very interested in seeing something that seemed so mundane to me at the time. However, after some convincing from my mom, I agreed to go and that experience changed my understanding about how history is rediscovered.

On August 9, 2017, children from both the East and West Green Bay clubs came together to meet the Deputy Director of the Neville Museum and archaeologist, Kevin Cullen, to learn about archaeology. The kids discovered and used various tools and techniques to participate in a mock dig. Afterwards the children were given a tour of the museum’s collection of local artifacts and were invited to visit and authentic excavation happening in September.
