SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The Coastal Empire getting a chance to learn about archaeology.

On Monday, the Society for Georgia Archaeology's Mobile Classroom - the Archaeobus arrived at Armstrong Atlantic State University for their Digging Savannah program.

The bus travels through the state offering programming for both students and the public. They hope the mobile classroom will help preserve the state's past - with a hands on experience.

"One thing is - kids really react to a big bus and being able to get out of the classroom. There are certain aspects to archeology that you can't get out of a textbook or on a chalkboard," said archeologist Scott Morris.

The bus is free and open to the public.

For more details, see the Archaeobus website.
