When a historic site serves as a playground, it's impossible to get bored! Children and adults alike will be charged with a mission of utmost importance: find traces of the past. Armed with shovels and trowels, dig up the soil to unearth artifacts from another era - it’s an original way of playing in the sand, regardless of your age! The activity lasts 30 minutes and is fun for anyone with a sense of curiosity.
