In this episode of "Museum Minute", VMNH Educator Terri Robertson is inside the museum's "Uncovering Virginia" exhibit to highlight a recreation of an archaeological trash pit from hundreds of years ago! Trash pits may not sound like much, but they can provide archaeologists with many important insights into the lives of people and societies living many years before us!

"Museum Minute" is a video series produced by VMNH education staff that highlights specimens and displays that reside inside the museum's exhibit galleries!
