This programme introduces children and teenagers of age 10-17 to hands-on archaeological activities at the national monument of Fort Cornwallis. The Young Archaeologists will participate in excavation, mapping and recording, finds processing and artefact conservation over two sessions on consecutive Saturdays. Participants will be guided by professional archaeologists from University Sains Malaysia, and will receive free admission to Fort Cornwallis. Parents or guardians of participants are welcome to observe the activities.
