Right: Urban Archeology
Did you know that there are archeological sites right here in New York City? Pieces of our city's history are hidden under our feet beneath streets, parks, and parking lots.
Under this playground, archeologists found wooden wharves (or docks) built over 200 years ago and many artifacts (objects) from our city's past. The place where you're standing used to be filled with water.
Left: Then and Now
Artifacts are clues that help us learn about people from the past. If archeologists found your shoe 100 years from now, what would they learn about you?
The artifacts in the left-hand column below were found here. Which of the present-day images on the right match up with them?
