Archaeo Cart


ARCHAEO CART is a program of the Florida Public Archaeology Network and is used to deliver engaging educational programs and archaeology outreach. When ARCHAEO CART visits your school or location, students and visitors can tour virtual displays of archaeology sites across Florida, uncover prehistoric and historic timelines, or discover what it takes to think like and be an archaeologist.

Archaeo Cart Postcard

ARCHAEO CART is a Portable Public Archaeology Classroom. It comes equipped with archaeology-related educational activities, interactive displays, and reading and resource materials. It is available for use at museums, libraries, media centers, schools, classrooms, and special events. Groups or organizations can borrow ARCHAEO CART for a predetermined length of time. Borrowers are required to provide security and dedicated electricity for the device and must also participate in a short training and workshop upon delivery.
