Three young kids venture outside their 2-D animated world to learn about early Alabama history for their upcoming school report. Aided by their hyper-intelligent robotic friend Roto and a magical portal, they visit some of Alabama’s historic sites to learn about Native American societies, early settlers, and the beginning of Alabama’s statehood. With the help of local archaeologists and historians they just might make it back home in time to get to school and turn in their report!
Archaeology Adventures will focus on Alabama pre-history and history through the lens of archaeology. Students will observe archaeologists on excavations, interview historians and visit historic sites—such as Moundville, The Poarch Band of Creek Indians Archives, Old Mobile and Old Cahawba archaeological sites—as they learn about Native American societies, early settlers, and early Alabama statehood.
APT is producing this Learning Adventure in collaboration with the Alabama Department of Archives and History, Alabama Historical Commission, Moundville Archaeological Park, The Poarch Band of Creek Indians, and the University of South Alabama Archaeology Museum.
