“Tombstones & Trowels” in Haverhill
November 27, 2012
The Haverhill Historical Society hosted an Archaeology Open House in honor of National Archaeology Day and Massachusetts Archaeology Month. The "Tombstones & Trowels" event included tours of the museum's archaeology exhibit, a scavenger hunt in a 17th century burial ground, refreshments, and a hall with different activity stations. In the hall, visitors were able to cross-mend redware potsherds, view "tools of the trade," make paper tombstones, excavate a mock dig, and clean artifacts.
Project Archaeology at the Beaverhead Museum hosted a teacher/student Archaeology Day for the region.
International Archaeology Day at the ROM gave museum visitors the chance to explore archaeology around the world
The AIA Spokane Society celebrated the 2013 International Archaeology Day over two days, with lectures and workshops
