National Archaeology Day Celebrations Kick Off in Boston
October 19, 2012
The National Archaeology Day celebrations started a day early in Boston with the opening of the 6th Annual Archaeological Institute of America-Museum of Science Archaeology Fair. The two-day event will see thousands of visitors participating in interactive archaeological activities presented by local archaeological groups. Activities this year include stamping your name in hieroglyphs, learning to map underwater archaeological sites, trying on Roman armor, mock excavations, flintknapping demonstrations, playing games from the ancient Near East, and much more!
The most recent Site Preservation Grant was awarded to a preservation and outreach project at Narce, Italy.
CPAC will discuss Egypt's recent request for import restrictions on archaeological materials and conduct an interim review of the Nicaragua MoU.
