I found an object that may be an artifact; can you offer information about it?
An artifact, once removed from its original context, is very difficult to analyze. We encourage Visit With Respect principles by taking photographs or drawing the artifacts, and leaving them in their original context.

Thank you for your interest. We are not accepting new volunteers at this time.
Who can join a program?
We offer a variety of programs for ages 9 and up.
Do I need any prior experience to participate in a program?
No prior experience is required; however, some knowledge of the subject may enhance your experience. We can offer you a variety of resources related to your program.
How strenuous are the programs? Are there any physical requirements?
All of our programs have unique and differing environments. If you are concerned about program difficulty, it is best to contact us, so we can discuss what to expect.
Are there any discounts or scholarships available?
Discounts are not available at this time. Scholarship availability varies depending on the program.
If I travel solo, will I be rooming with somebody else?
Our tuitions are built on the assumption that two people will be sharing a room together, thereby splitting the cost of a full room in half between two tuitions. If you would like a room to yourself we will add the cost of half a room, also known as a ‘single supplement’. This is not a penalty for being single, this is simply covering the full cost of a single room for one person.
