The archaeology fair is an event that features archaeologically themed programs and interactive activities for the whole family. Activities are created and presented by archaeologists, educators, and other specialists.

This is your chance to dig into the past! Here are some highlights of many participating organizations:

Boston National Historical Park
Digging up the Past: Come have a hand at “Archaeology in a Box!” Participants will use archaeological tools and methods to “excavate” artifacts as though they were on a real dig.

Diablo Glass School
Glassblowing: Come to an outdoor demonstration and watch an interactive exposition with the tools and materials used to blow glass!

Franklin Pierce Anthropology Club
Learn to Throw an Atlatl: Come learn about the history of the atlatl and how it was used in the past. Watch a demonstration of the power of this throwing tool, and even get a chance to try it out yourself!

Joe Bagley - Flintknapper
Flintknapping—The Art and Science of Stone Tools: Come see the ancient art of making stone tools! A hands-on display will feature modern arrowheads and other stone tools, and there will be live demonstrations of flintknapping throughout the day.

Legio III Cyrenaica
Roman Living Historians: Come see a display of accurate reconstructions of Roman Legion artifacts and equipment, some of which you can handle and even try on! Learn how to march and maneuver like a Roman soldier, and listen to a lecture describing the life of a man in the Roman army. Even have your photo taken with a Roman soldier!
