Connect to Your History

Do any of these scenarios sound familiar?

  • You prefer historical fiction over Sci-Fi or romance novels
  • A perfect evening is watching documentaries on PBS- and you’ve just given up on the alien lovin’ History Channel
  • You screech to a halt whenever you see a roadside historical marker
  • A museum visit sounds like a perfect first date.
  • You think the 20th century is so modern
  • You can name all 6 wives….
  • The “Making of Downton Abbey” special is as good as the actual show
  • You have serious plans should time travel become commonplace
  • You constantly wonder what archaeologists would think– if they dug in your back yard in 200 years.

If so, you are ready to take it to the next level!

So, come by and get some real world experience while working alongside professional archaeologists, historians, and preservationists.
