Archaeology of the Lower Fraser River

This 50-minute live digital program is adapted from MOA’s onsite Archaeology of the Lower Fraser River program, which was designed in collaboration with archaeologists from the Laboratory of Archaeology at UBC.

You can select between two Archaeology program options:

  • Archaeology of the Lower Fraser River: Hunting + Fishing
  • Archaeology of the Lower Fraser River: Woodworking + Home Life

During the program students will discover the rich 9,000 year history of the First Nations communities along the Lower Fraser River.  With the help of volunteer facilitators during the live digital component, students will learn about the life ways, tools and technology used by First Nations people. This is done by observing and studying ancient cultural belongings.  The live digital component is part of an overall unit plan, with prerequisite lessons that show the techniques used by archaeologists to find and identify the belongings.

Once you book this school program, you will receive the complete unit plan by email, along with confirmation of date and time of the live digital component.
