Remaining public tours scheduled for 2013
WE hope that everyone will come to visit us this summer in June! The first weekend allowed us to work out the tour’s basics and the visitors helped us to think about how we could improve the experience. Cliff is an important site with a fascinating history, and we hope to share it with as many visitors as possible. Come see the excavations while they are in process and talk with the student, faculty, and volunteer research crews while they dig and screen, add to our map, and learn about daily life in this town!
Public Tours led by students and faculty:
Visitors can interact with the students and see the excavations at any time. The first organized tour heads out at 10 AM and subsequently start around the top of each hour. Each tour lasts about an hour or more and people can visit several parts of the site this year, so multiple tours are available. The tours are informal, and led by faculty and students while work continues right in front of you. Visitors speak directly with researchers.
You can find detailed driving directions here, and remember to be prepared for rough backwoods hiking in the Keweenaw: bottled water, hat, bug repellent, clothes that can get muddy, etc. No flip-flops please.
