When most people think of archeology, they think of an adventurous explorer who braves great danger to grab a precious object! Archeology provides a link to the past and a means to study to the people who came before us.Junior Archeologists are important people because they help archeologists take care of very special places.The Junior Archeologist program is an opportunity for children to learn about the archeology at Hopewell Culture National Historical Park and have fun at the same time!
