Panhandle Pioneer Project: Linking past and present generations

June 21st to June 24th, 2010
8:00 am to 12:00 pm


This summer Courson Archaeological Research (CAR) is launching the Panhandle Pioneer Project for local youth ages 8 and up.  The event will run from June 21st to June 24th from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm.  As the title suggests, it is hoped that this project will stimulate conversations between older and younger generations about our past history.  This project is co-sponsored by the Museum of the Plains and is intended to provide area youth with an introduction into the life of the spirited and courageous men and women that settled the Texas panhandle frontier.  This event will revolve around the controlled archaeological excavations of an actual early pioneer dugout along the picturesque banks of Wolf Creek. In addition to excavations, daily activities will include educational hands-on activities and games, story telling, living history presentations, site tours for the public, and other fun activities!  Following the field school, a limited number of participants will be invited to assist CAR employees as they clean and study artifacts recovered during the field school.  Upon completion of the field and laboratory work we will work with a few of the more advanced participants to assemble a short presentation suitable for area civic groups and clubs.  For more information and sign up please contact the Museum of the Plains from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm at 435-6400.
