Iowa City Holds Fair for National Archaeology Day
October 27, 2011
AIA-Iowa City Society’s National Archaeology Day Fair opened with a lecture by Steven and Kathleen Holen of the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. After the lecture participants were able to tour the University of Iowa faculty and Office of the State Archaeologist labs as well as see Puebloan pottery from the University of Iowa Museum of Art and try their hand at flint-knapping, atlatls, and carving slate plaques. Many left the successful event with copies of Archaeology magazine provided by the Society!
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.
