“My name is Infinity Gumbs and I am a sophomore in the Equality building. I participated in the archaeology class. There was many things to learn and to explore. While I was there I cleared passages and helped to measure areas. I even found the old mill site right near the water, so that was a huge accomplishment for me. It is a great experience overall. This class also includes learning to work with others, to decipher and accurately draw a map of the area. Plus much more. If I could I would take this class again and I would gladly suggest this to anyone who is interested in Archaeology.
“Hi! I’m Tianay Enos. I’m in 11th grade at the Met. When I was at the archaeology program Erin was my mentor. She is an archaeologist and her job is to look for artifacts and old things from past generations. Erin taught us basic archaeology at the Nathaneal Greene Homestead. We found artifacts like bottles, broken glass, plates, and horse shoes. The Nathaneal Greene house is very old. It contains a lot of old things like the clothes and big dresses. I was amazed by how things change over time and how interesting it was to build something like that back in those days. I really liked the Iron Man program. I will recommend this program to anyone who wants to learn about the past and for people who don’t mind getting their hands dirty.”
“My name is Jose Batista. I am a 10th grader the Equality building. Last year I participated in the Archeology program for Living History. I hope to do it again this year. I liked that I got to go places with them that I never went to before like The Nathaniel Greene Homestead where they made iron. While we were there we saw an old graveyard. I learned that one of the brother’s that lived there was in the civil war.”
“Hi I’m Anyelo Rosado. I’m in the 10th grade and I’m fourteen. I was born in the Dominican Republic and moved here in 2009. First I lived in New Jersey throughout all of elementary school, then I moved to Providence for Middle School. I’ve always liked to try new things and archaeology has been the most interesting one. This has been a fun learning experience!”
