Public Dig

Saturday, September 9th, 2017

9:00 – 12:00; 1:00 – 4:00 Pre-registration required

Following the success of our public archaeology dig in Sept. 2016, we are having another dig to learn more about our historical iron foundry site dating from 1828.

Participants can choose from the junior dig, suitable for children and adults; or an advanced dig experience for participants age 15 and up. Both experiences will be supervised by professional archaeologists.

Dig sessions are 9:00 – 12:00 and from 1:00 – 4:00.

There is a maximum of 20 participants per dig type for each session. Admission is free. Pre-registration is required. Call the Museum at 902-755-5425 to register and learn more.

This event is co-sponsored by Industrial Heritage Nova Scotia. The Town of New Glasgow and Birchwood Campground and Cabins are community partners.
