Student Testimony

“. . . This “class” (actually 5 separate sessions, 4-6 hours each) was very enlightening to me personally, and I would recommend it to anyone who has a passion to get involved with learning more about the archeology of our region, and the desire to help preserve it.” Marvin Gohlke, Jr. (click for full testimony)
