Hands-on Discovery at the Marco Island Historical Museum
October 31, 2013
In honor of International Archaeology Day, the Marco Island Historical Museum hosted "Family Archaeology Day" on October 19, 2013 from 11 am to 2 pm. Families had the opportunity to create unique Calusa Indian masks and learn the techniques of pottery and bracelet making. With the help of real archaeologists, children were also able to sift through ancient sands looking for local archaeological treasures using the tools of the trade.
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.
