The Archaeological Institute of America–Jacksonville Society will celebrate International Archaeology Day with its annual fair at the Beaches Museum in Jacksonville Beach from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Attendees can learn how local Native Americans made pottery and rope from natural resources and can actually make their own examples. Other organizations that will be participating are the University of North Florida and the Jacksonville Museum of Science and History. There will also be a simulated dig where children can pretend to be archaeologists. Students from the University of North Florida will be on hand to assist. At noon in the historic 1887 chapel we will have a lecture by Dr. John Walker, a professor at the University of Central Florida.
