NATIONAL ARCHAEOLOGY DAY (USA) is October 20

The AIA is partnering with its 108 Local Societies to host events in over 100 cities across the United States and Canada for people of all ages and interests as part of its second annual Archaeology Day on October 20. Archaeology Day is officially recognized in the United States, but we’re happy to celebrate in Canada, too!

 

The Winnipeg Society is celebrating by presenting an interactive Archaeology Open Lab Day at the University of Winnipeg.

11am – 4 pm, Room 4C39 – 4th floor of Centennial Hall at the University of Winnipeg downtown campus, 515 Portage Avenue

Come by to experience what it is like to excavate an archaeological site and to process and analyze artifacts (including ancient bones and tools). Materials from different excavations and displays of archaeology in action will be on exhibit for the public to view – a chance to indulge your inner Indiana Jones! All events are free and open to individuals of all ages!
