Elkhart County Historical Museum to Celebrate with Reenactment
May 17, 2012
Collaborating Organization Elkhart County Historical Museum will hold their annual reenactment Gathering at Five Medals, a juried living history event, on the weekend of National Archaeology Day. The event in Elkhart County, Indiana, portrays the region from the years 1650 to 1815. Many of the reenactors have used archaeological research to create their personas and experimental archaeology such as flintknapping will also be a part of this fun event. Organizers currently expect approximately 3,000 attendees including 700 school children.
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.
