Archaeology Week teaches kids about local fossils

From furry four legged friends to creatures that walked millions of years ago, Tuesday kids learned all about dinosaurs that once lived in our own backyard. For Archaeology Week at the Children's Museum of Wilmington, Cape Fear Community College professor Dr. Rocks, Phil Garwood, showed kids dinosaur fossils found in our area. One fossil belonged to the duck billed dinosaur, also called the Hadrosaurid, which was discovered in Castle Hayne. The students also learned how this dinosaur likely died. “The dinosaur stepped in water, a shark bite him and now he has a tooth in his leg, said camper Carly Farmer. The kids also got to touch some of the fossils. The camp runs through Friday.

Archaeology (?) Week

Maybe I'm just being picky but the study of dinosaurs is paleontology, not archaeology.
