– In Rhode Island Hall on the Main Green of Brown University, come see ancient coins from Greece and Rome up close! Touch ancient animal bones! Examine and draw Persian and Roman ceramics, prehistoric tools, precious metals, and other artifacts from thousands of years ago – coached by experts! And talk with Brown’s archaeologists about their fieldwork all over the world! Family friendly, free and open to the public.
– On the grounds of Moses Brown School (at the corner of Hope St. and Lloyd Ave.), come be part of an active archaeological excavation! Students from ARCH 1900: The Archaeology of College Hill will be digging on the grounds of Moses Brown School (next to Brown’s athletic center), uncovering the foundations of a 19th century home and processing artifacts from that household. Stop by any time between 11:00 am and 3:00 pm to see what artifacts students are discovering or even try your hand at digging. Family friendly, free and open to the public.
