Join us for a mock archaeology excavation where children play the role of an archaeologist. There is also a coil pot building station where participants are guided through the process and end up with a pot of their own to take home. Watch low-tech fire starting demonstrations at several points throughout the morning. Members of the Ottawa Chapter of the Ontario Archaeological Society will be on hand to discuss and explain local archaeology and history. 10am- 1pm
