Dig It! Archaeology Adventures at the Skirball Cultural Center celebrates International Archaeology Day and California Archaeology Month!

About the Program

Calling all aspiring archaeologists to the Skirball’s dig site! With the help of the archaeological staff in an outdoor field laboratory, discover what we have in common with people who lived centuries ago.

Slip on an archaeologist’s vest, sift and sort to find ancient artifacts buried beneath the sand, weigh and examine your findings, and analyze clues to piece together the story of an ancient Iron Age town.

Archaeology Month at the Skirball: Craft in the Ancient World

Each weekend in October, let’s celebrate California Archaeology Month! Through a combination of live demonstrations and interactive activities, discover how people in the past made crafts. The Near East meets the West as we look at traditions from both ancient Israel and California.
