"Many children have an inherent curiosity about the past," Bucchino said. "We like to build on that curiosity by introducing new concepts and new perspectives essential to the archaeological process."

Much like a visit to Biophilia opens your eyes to the local ecosystem, through the archaeology activities, children of all ages will get the chance to see the world in a brand new light.

"Children discover history in a way that can be very meaningful for their personal, cultural or community identity," said Bucchino. "Archaeology is important in helping children appreciate the wide range of human experience and cultural difference."

WANT TO GO? Head to the E.O. Wilson Biophilia Center , 4956 State Highway 20 E., Freeport , Saturday, Feb. 1 from 10 to 3 p.m. for the Archaeology for Kids event. Admission is $8 for adults, $5 for children 12 and under and free for children 2 and under. For more information, visit or call 835-1824.
