Into this century what are now park woodlands were inhabited by small communities. As one travels these areas, evidence of former habitations can be seen--evidence such as foundations, stone walls, wells fruit trees, trash heaps, latrine pits, and introduced plant species are common and obvious. But most people don't realize what they are looking at when they see it. This show is an introduction to what is actually a form of archaeology which explains to those who frequently hike or otherwise are in the forest and fields, how to differentiate between the works of man and the works of nature. Can also be done in conjunction with a field trip.
