Erosion along a creek bed produces a startling discovery – a human skeleton! Before the clues are washed away forever, visitors will get the chance to examine the evidence collected by the archaeologist during this drop-in program. Using the forensic tools and techniques of Smithsonian scientists, study the human bones and artifacts found with the skeleton to determine who this person was, when they lived, and what their life might have been like. Uncover the mystery of a person whose burial could turn out to be over 200 years old!
