What is archaeology? It’s more than just digging in the dirt! Come out to “Public Archaeology Day” to talk with the experts and learn all about what we do. Activities, crafts, and fun for all ages! Learn how prehistoric peoples made their stone tools; identify artifacts from archaeological excavations; explore how underwater archaeologists study shipwrecks; discover how we preserve artifacts through conservation and gain more information through artifact reconstruction. This FREE event will take place in the plaza between the Museum of History and Museum of Natural Sciences in downtown Raleigh.
