International Archaeology Day at the Oshawa Community Museum
October 21, 2013
For International Archaeology, the Oshawa Community Museum offered guests a passport to take around to different archaeology themed stations throughout the Museum.
There was a craft station, guess the artifact, mapping demonstrations, tools of the trade, shoe box dig stations, artifacts discovered and a lecture from an Archaeologist.
Having excavated on our site before, this event allowed the museum to bring out artifacts they had discovered, discuss archaeology in Oshawa and debunk some of the myths about this profession.
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.
The Commission to Preserve National Monuments celebrated the International Archaeology Day with a series of events titled "Cultural Memory, a Vanishing Treasure: Archaeological Heritage of BiH."
