Amesbury Public Library Celebrates International Archaeology Day
October 25, 2013
For International Archaeology Day 2013 at the Amesbury Public Libaray, James Gage presented a lecture on Stone Structures of New England on October 21st. Northeastern Massachusetts has an abundance of historic and prehistoric stone structures. Some are familiar, like stone walls, house cellars, and wells, while others are unfamiliar, such as stone cairns, silver mines, and quarried boulders with strange tool marks. Gage's presentation explored the diversity of stone structures and other stone working activity which can be found locally on conservation land, old farms, and even in your backyard! It focused on how to identify them, explain who built them, and discuss their purpose. Eighteen people attended this lecture.
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
