National Archaeology Day with Michigan's State Archaeologist
October 23, 2012
National Archaeology Day came early to the residents of Michigan. On October 6, State Archaeologist Dr. Dean Anderson hosted Michigan Archaeology Day at the Michigan Historical Center. Over 650 people attended the one-day celebration where they were able to participate in a variety of events. The archaeology fair included fun hands-on activities, as well as experimental archaeology demonstrations of flintknapping and atlatl throwing. There were also educational lectures, student presentations, and special museum tours and exhibits available for visitors.
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.
