Oriental Institute Hosts Film Screening
December 6, 2013
A renowned leader in uncovering the origins of the world's earliest civilizations, the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago has a long and fascinating history that stretches back to the last years of the nineteenth century. For International Archaeology Day, the Oriental Institute hosted a film screening "Breaking Ground: the Story of the Oriental Institute" for eight attendees. This film was produced by Chicago Public Television and includes images and footage from historic excavations as well as Oriental Institute projects currently underway in Turkey and Egypt.
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.
Project Archaeology at the Beaverhead Museum hosted a teacher/student Archaeology Day for the region.
