Field Trips

The Kentucky Archaeological Survey often partners with others to offer teachers and students opportunities to become involved in archaeological research.  This usually involves students assisting in the field and laboratory. 

Building Blocks of History

The Building Blocks of History program is a full day field trip open to K-12 students.  The program is designed to educate students about life at at Riverside, The Farnsley-Moremen Landing in Louisville, Kentucky.  This historic site, located in southwestern Jefferson County, interprets nineteenth-century plantation and farm life. 

The Building Blocks program offers three activities:  a tour of the ca. 1837 main house and reconstructed kitchen; a brick making activity; and a participatory archaeological excavation.  For more information and to book a field trip contact Riverside, The Farnsley-Moreman Landing
