Kansas Archeology Training Program Field School (KATP)
The Samuel and Florella Adair Cabin, now the focus of the John Brown Museum State Historic Site, has stood in John Brown Memorial Park in Osawatomie since 1912, but originally it was located at the western edge of town. From Friday, May 30, through Saturday, June 14, the Kansas Archeology Training Program (KATP) field school will undertake intensive archeological testing at the original cabin site (14MM327).
Participants will work alongside professional and avocational archeologists to investigate 4MM327, the original site of the Adair Cabin. No experience is necessary--just a desire to learn. Children must be at least 10 years old and accompanied by a parent or responsible adult. Volunteers can attend for a few days or the entire 16 days of the field school. Archeology technique courses are also offered and can be taken for college credit.
