Sponsored by: Benicia Historical Museum, Benicia Historical Society, and Archaeological Research Faculty at UC Berkeley
Benicia is home to many important archaeological sites associated with Native Californians and later European, American, and Chinese settlers. I Dig Benicia is an event to learn about archaeology and Benicia’s rich history as you try your hand at excavating artifacts, reconstructing archaeological finds, grinding corn, drawing Native American pictograms, shaping clay pots, creating cave paintings, and more! Come meet and talk with archaeologists from UC Berkeley and learn about what archaeologists do. See archaeological material found right here in Benicia and discover archaeological treasures housed in the Museum. This event is FREE and so is entry to the museum exhibits that day!
