Have you ever imagined being an archaeologist, digging through the past to make important finds? You’ll get an up-close look at one of Louisville's great historic sites this January at Farnsley-Moremen Riverside Landing, and you'll get the chance to be an archaeologist yourself!
The Other Side of Archaeology
The free public lab at Riverside, the Other Side of Archaeology, is a fun way to get a great look at Louisville's past. The free lab begins at 9 am at the Historic Riverside Landing. It's right on the river, and it's a big piece of the city's past.
The Farnsley-Moremen Riverside Landing isn’t just a beautiful historic site, it's still helping scientists see where Louisville has been and maybe even where it's going. You'll get to look at actual artifacts that were uncovered here, and you'll get a look at past and present archaeological digs on the property. You'll learn how to dig carefully for your own artifacts, how to wash and identify them, and you'll learn some of the tricks that archaeologists use to bring the past to life. Be at 7410 Moorman Road bright and early, and be prepared for a close look at the past.
Participants get to see behind the scenes of this historic homestead, including the detached kitchen, the ice house, the barn and several other amazing areas of the property. Stay for the special behind-the-scenes tour at 11:30. After you get a look at history, go explore the rest of the neighborhood. Look around Valley Station, and see how you might make your own history here.
