Cleveland Archaeological Society and Museum of Natural History Join Together for Archaeology Fair
November 5, 2012
As part of the National Archaeology Day celebrations, the AIA-Cleveland Society, joined the Cleveland Museum of Natural History on October 13 to promote archaeology and earth sciences. This family friendly event featured interactive opportunities for archaeologists young and old to ‘restore’ pottery sherds, explore archaeological tools and methods, and learn more about archaeological work in northeast Ohio. Once again, the "AIA mummy" proved a popular photo op for visitors! Over 200 people visited the Archaeology Fair, making this one of the Cleveland Archeological Society's most successful outreach events of the year!
University of Alaska Anchorage hosted International Archaeology Day on October 19th.
The Northeast Region of the Florida Public Archaeology Network hosted an Archaeology Bar Crawl through downtown St. Augustine in honor of International Archaeology Day.
