It’s always a great feeling to get asked to come back to a wonderful library like the Mt. Zion Public Library, and that is exactly what happened! The folks over in Mt. Zion just couldn’t get enough of this archaeoGAL last year, so theirs truly rolled on over their way yet again! This time I got to share my knowledge of archaeology with some FANTASTIC kids at the Mt. Zion Public Libraries Summer Reading Program!

Not only did we get to play around outside, but my New South crew played some fun games with the kids inside, where they got to learn how archaeologists observe and study artifacts. The kids analyzed objects like pennies and t-shirts to learn about what types of details archaeologists look for in artifacts. I’m sure they were also excited to just be inside, because I was feeling the heat outside! Unfortunately I couldn’t get inside to cool off because I was a little too roBUSt! We could tell that we had some budding archaeologists on our hands, with all of the great observations and conclusions they made!

The kids and their parents were eager to learn about all of my fun tidbits of knowledge! It was great to go back out to Mt. Zion and I could really feel the love! They knew how to make a girl feel special!
