Archaeology Day at the San Antonio Spanish Missions

AIA Society Event: Southwest TX (San Antonio)

Saturday, October 13, 2012

Location:
Mission San José
6701 San José Drive
San Antonio, TX 78214
United States

Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) – Southwest TX Archaeological Society (SWTAS) will participate in Archaeology Day at the San Antonio Missions on October 13, 2012, held at San Jose Mission, San Antonio, TX. SWTAS will present information about the AIA and SWTAS, the AIA local chapter, plus present activities suitable for children centered on ancient writing systems. Children will be provided with information about alphabets and syllabaries for Ancient Egyptian, Greek (Linear B and Classical), Mayan, Ancient Celtic Ogham, and Roman numerals. Children will be taught how to write their names in ancient letters and how to translate a short quote. Through this learning activity, children will learn how ancient peoples thought about the world and how they described it through their texts.

Archaeology Day at the Mission is an annual event in San Antonio, hosted by the National Park Service at the Spanish Mission of San Jose.  It includes participants from several regional archaeological and historical organizations. Each organization presents information about itself, as well as some activities for children. AIA-SWTAS has participated every year for the last five years. Last year, about 2000 children attended the event, and at least that many are expected this year.
