Hands-On Archaeology

Puzzles of the past

Join our team of archaeologists to travel through time and explore New Zealand’s past.

This project will introduce you to the range of tools that we use to unlock the secrets of the past.

Work in our archaeological laboratories using state-of-the-art equipment to analyse archaeological artefacts and assemblages. Learn how to make your own stone tools and how to identify different faunal remains from archaeological sites. Visit the Otago Museum to have an insider’s look at their archaeological collections.

Finally, come on a field trip where we learn how to identify and record real archaeological sites.
