WHAT:   With the Archeology merit badge, Scouts get to become detectives who study how people lived in the past to reveal the what, when, how and why of peoples daily lives and cultures. Using the clues that people left behind, Scouts will understand how and why human culture has changed through time!

 MEET YOUR COUNSELOR - Mr. Scholl has more than 15 years of experience in archaeology and cultural resource management, including over eight years as a practicing geo-archaeologist. His geographic expertise is focused on the Northeast, Southeast, and Midwest United States on both prehistoric and historic archaeological projects. In addition, Mr. Scholl specializes in applying techniques of soil and geomorphological analysis to archaeological sites for predictive and interpretive purposes. Mr. Scholl has successfully supervised and trained archaeological students and professionals of varying levels of experience on archaeological project and field schools.
