Collections Corner: Shipwreck Simulator

August 5, 2023 , 11:00 am 1:00 pm


Try your hand at being an archaeologist! Visitors will experience an archaeological excavation firsthand in our shipwreck simulator. Staff will teach the basics of archaeological documentation and demonstrate how artifacts now in the Collection were recovered. The public will learn about the importance of context in both archaeological investigation and Museum interpretation through this program, as well as get a chance to make their own observations.

The shipwreck simulator is outdoors and can be reached by traversing several yards of flat, grassy terrain. For accessibility questions or requests, please contact the Museum at 802-475-2022 or info@lcmm.org.
