This year the Verde Valley Archaeology Center will mark Archaeology Day with "Everything Mesoamerican" activities. These films, lectures and demonstrations are all FREE.  The Center will open earlier at 9:00 am on October 17 with activities until 5:00 pm.  Each venue has limited seating so they will be filled on a first-come basis.  The activities include:
