Archaeological Fun in Belize!
October 30, 2013
The Belize Institute of Archaeology hosted an Archaeology Fair at their office in Belmopan. There were display panels providing the public with information on archaeology including definitions and explanations of the way an archaeologist goes about working, as well as information on archaeology in Belize. There was also information on the different types of artifacts found throughout Belize, varying from Maya origin to HIstoric/Colonial times. There were also lots of games and trivia for kids, which allowed them to learn about archaeology in Belize. As prizes, we were able to give away various post cards, posters, pencils, and cups from the Institute of Archaeology and the National Institute of Culture and History. As part of this event, was also a poster competition which was open to all primary schools and based on the motto 'Preserving the Past for the Future'.
More Collaborating Organizations have joined us for International Archaeology Day 2014!
We are so excited to be celebrating International Archaeology Day again this year on October 18, 2014 to raise awareness for archaeology and provide opportunities for the public to participate in archaeological activities.
In preparation for IAD 2014, we just set up a new webpage with precomposed e-mail invitations that you can easily send to your contacts.
