BE AN ARCHAEOLOGIST FOR A DAY! ONLY FOR Kids 40 EUR/ PARENTS FREE

Play-Dig-Learn! Let’s help prehistory come to life for kids! Especially for that purpose we have constructed an archaeological pit for kids to learn the purpose of archaeology and have a great time too!  Dig the interiors of a minoan house!   Lillipopite Archaeologist We pick you up (afternoon time) with your kid from your accommodation and transfer you to the archaeological pit, which is based on real-life archaeological excavations from the Minoan time period. When a group of children comes to dig with us, we take the time to help them understand what an archaeologist does and how he or she works. We teach archaeological techniques and explain why excavating is done in a specific way. As they dig, we supervise their progress, helping them to understand each step’s purpose. Using a combination of Minoan artifacts and fossils buried in the soil, we help our junior archaeologists reconstruct history.
