Students from Mrs. McBride's class and Mrs. Pollard's class were able to Zoom with archeologist Kimberly Byrnes. Ms. Byrnes shared her personal story of becoming an archeologist and answered student questions. Students learned that Ms. Byrnes helped to excavate a colonial era town in North Carolina last year and told us about the cannon that her team recently recovered from Blackbeard's pirate ship!
