Harvard archaeologists and students will bring history alive for families by presenting hands-on activities, sharing their research, and providing demonstrations of ancient and up-to-the-minute technologies. Join in colonial-era excavations using smartphones. Use a Google Cardboard viewer and “travel” via virtual reality with a tour guide to Egypt or Israel. Throw a handmade spear with a spear thrower (weather permitting). Talk to archaeologists about their work and their discoveries. Activities spread across both the Peabody and the Harvard Semitic Museums. Live music provided by THUD, The Harvard Undergraduate Drummers.
