Ever wonder how art and artifacts get to museums? At this family-friendly event, you will discover how archaeologists unearth material culture and document their exciting finds in the field—and even get your hands a little dirty! Learn how collecting institutions work to understand the histories of objects under their care and consider questions about who owns and can access the things that connect us to the past. This free event is suitable for all ages.
International Archaeology Day is a celebration of archaeology and its contributions to society, organized by the Archaeological Institute of America.
