Celebrate National Archaeology Day at Pueblo Grande Museum
October 11, 2012 | by Pueblo Grande Museum
Join the Pueblo Grande Museum on October 20, 2012 in celebrating the 2nd Annual National Archaeology Day. The Museum will be offering demonstrations of preservation and conservation methods used on our prehistoric Hohokam platform mound by our volunteer Mudslinging group in collaboration with the Central Arizona Society of the Archaeological Institute of America. There will also be a free Archaeology for Kids program from 9am to 12pm, where children can learn about archaeology by doing a simulated excavation of a Hohokam pithouse.
Cooking demonstrations by the Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Community Huhugam Ki Museum will be along the ruin trail. Complimentary tours of the Museum and archaeological site will be available through the morning. Pueblo Grande Museum will also be offering free museum admission all day to celebrate National Archaeology Day.

We are so excited to be celebrating International Archaeology Day again this year on October 18, 2014 to raise awareness for archaeology and provide opportunities for the public to participate in archaeological activities.
In preparation for IAD 2014, we just set up a new webpage with precomposed e-mail invitations that you can easily send to your contacts.
Project Archaeology at the Beaverhead Museum hosted a teacher/student Archaeology Day for the region.
