Urban Archaeologist’s Apprentice

Sunday, June 5, 2016
1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

This past year, construction workers at Washington Square Park found two burial vaults from the 19th Century. Now is your chance to unlock New York’s past with Alyssa Loorya, the archaeologist studying this historic site. Piece together pottery to reconstruct artifacts, create a map of all the archaeological sites throughout the city using Google Maps, and take a tour of the streets of New York with a new mission in mind: discovering what’s beneath your feet!

Note: This is a student-only program for kids in the 3rd grade and up. Parents/Guardians should drop off their children for this one-hour event.
