Spokane Archaeology Day

October 6, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm EDT

Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture
2316 West 1st Ave.
Spokane, WA 99201 United States

The Association for Washington Archaeology invites you to travel back in time and immerse yourself in the history and culture of the Columbia Plateau’s native people during Spokane Archaeology Day on the Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture (MAC) grounds.

This interactive event celebrating historic preservation will feature something for everyone – including demonstrations, exhibits and Native American storytelling. Archaeology Day is free and open to the public.

People of all ages are invited to experience the methods archaeologists use to learn about the heritage of the Inland Northwest. Among the family-friendly activities, visitors will be able to conduct an archaeological survey and a mock excavation; learn how to identify historic artifacts; learn how to make a tool through flint knapping; practice zooarchaeology by studying animal bones and much more!

“As our communities around the region grow, it is important we don’t lose that appreciation for the past,” says Jennifer Wilson of EWU Archaeological and Historical Services. “This event is designed to show people how archaeology helps us better understand our shared heritage.”
