Do Some Digging in the Dirt April 23
Lots of people have imagined what it might be like to be an archaeologist. To uncover something long buried in the Earth, an artifact that is hundreds, maybe even thousands, of years old. So go do that this April and go join in at the public archaeology day at Gatewood Plantation.
