International Archaeology Day in Kosovo and Belize

International Archaeology Day celebrations in Kosovo

International Archaeology Day was celebrated in Kosovo at the Museum of Peja with a lecture on “Archaeological Cultural Heritage” by Dr. Sefer Lajqi and cocktails.  Fifty people attended the event in western Kosovo.

In the Western Hemisphere in Belize, International Archaeology Day activities focused on outreach to children.  The Belize Institute of Archaeology hosted an Archaeology Fair with several interactive activities that focused on teaching the importance of archaeology and highlighting the work done to manage Belize’s archaeological reserves.  The Institute of Archaeology’s sister institution, the Institute for Social and Cultural Research (ISCR), also had a small display on traditional activities still being practiced by the present day Maya communities in Belize.  350 people, including many school children, attended the fair.
