The Archaeology Day Camp offers historically-minded young people and adults the opportunity to participate in an authentic archaeological dig at Greenwood Furnace. During the camp, participants will experience aspects of archaeology, from proper digging and removal of artifacts, to the cleaning and cataloging of what is found. Moreover, participants just might be on the “front line” with an important new discovery about Greenwood Furnace.…you never know what may be found. During previous camps, many new discoveries were made, enhancing the story of Greenwood Furnace.
