Archaeology Fair with the Friends of the Office of State Archaeology in Connecticut
December 13, 2012
The Friends of the Office of State Archaeology in Connecticut acted as a participating partner in National Archaeology Day by sponsoring an Archaeology Fair. The event was free and open to the public. On October 27, local archaeological societies, historical societies, and universities set up displays highlighting the archaeological work that is going on throughout the state. Short lectures included topics from the pre-contact, contact, and post-contact eras of Connecticut’s history. Donations were also accepted which will help support the work of the State Archaeologist. The goal of the Archaeology Fair was to raise awareness of archaeology in Connecticut.
Project Archaeology at the Beaverhead Museum hosted a teacher/student Archaeology Day for the region.
International Archaeology Day at the ROM gave museum visitors the chance to explore archaeology around the world
The AIA Spokane Society celebrated the 2013 International Archaeology Day over two days, with lectures and workshops
