Event Description

This virtual education experience will offer you a chance to connect, play, and laugh your way through Moundville Archaeological Park and the Jones Archaeological Museum. Your Host (Rebecca Johnson, The University of Alabama Museums‘ Communications Specialist) will give you clues and instructions while your Tour Guide (Lindsey Gordon, Moundville’s Education Outreach Coordinator) will be in the museum with a live video feed acting as your eyes, ears, hands, and feet. Rebecca will help you watch videos, and help you keep track of the items and clues you find along the way. This interactive experience would be catered to classrooms on Thursday, October 7 at 10 AM. Each class will have to work together using Moundville’s history to solve one of Moundville’s Museum Mysteries!
