AIA-Dayton Society Celebrates National Archaeology Day
October 26, 2011
83 people participated in the AIA-Dayton Society's National Archaeology Day event at SunWatch Indian Village/Archaeological Park. A ground penetrating radar demonstration by Wright State University’s Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences was a big hit among the adults and kids got a kick out of tool displays available during the event. The beautiful weather contributed to the success of the event and Dayton Society members were able to give out info on joining the AIA and the Dayton Society as well as about the lectures that they have starting in January.
