Museum of New Mexico’s Office of Archaeological Studies Help Visitors to Experience New Mexico's Past through Archaeology
December 3, 2012
The Office of Archaeological Studies, in collaboration with the Santa Fe Chapter of the Archaeological Institute of America and other organizations in northern New Mexico, celebrated National Archaeology Day by hosting an open house at the newly opened Center for New Mexico Archaeology. Visitors had the opportunity to tour the new building which serves as the primary storage facility for New Mexico’s archaeological collections as well as the offices and working research laboratories of the Office of Archaeological Studies. Visitors of all ages experienced New Mexico’s unique 14,000 year cultural heritage through a wide range of hands-on activities, demonstrations, and interactions with archaeologists.
As preparations for International Archaeology Day pick up speed, more groups sign on daily. Today, four new groups joined the cause.
The Society for California Archaeology has signed on as a collaborating organization for International Archaeology Day.
2013's International Archaeology Day sees the return of many collaborating organizations from years past!
