We do that Archaeologists search for artifacts
About 40 volunteers will finish a two-week excavation Saturday in the Uwharrie National Forest.

They are part of a national program called Passport in Time, which gives people an opportunity to help unearth artifacts. The program also helps archaeologists excavate more area with limited funds.

Some of the artifacts found at this particular site are between 6,000 and 8,000 years old.
