"Finding stuff is always exciting," says archaelogist Brian Jones (at right) who joins his children in a simulated archaelogy dig at the second annual Connecticut Archaeology Expo at the Keeney Memorial Cultural Center in Old Wethersfield, Conn. on Oct. 9, 2005. From left are Tristan, 8, Fiona, 4, and Brian Jones of Glastonbury. The trio uncovered some authentic coins dating back to the 1700's and other historic and pre-historic artifacts including sea shells and beads. The expo, presented by the Connecticut State Museum of Natural History and the Conn. Archaeology Center at UConn, featured lectures and displays about the human history of Southern New England.
