Archaeological school camp

Kierikki Stone Age Centre has organized archaeological school camps annually in August and September for more than a decade. The camp can be arranged as an optional high school course, but the program is also suitable for amateur archaeologists and groups. The excavations, the Stone Age village and the exhibitions in the main building make the distant past come to life in a tangible way.

In the archaeology camp the students participate in the excavations in Kierikinkangas under the guidance of professional archaeologists. They also explore the site and the surroundings on guided trips and visit the archaeological laboratory in the University of Oulu.

Location: Kierikki Stone Age Centre
