Alaska’s Whitney and Valdez Museums Celebrate with a Scavenger Hunt
December 10, 2012
The Maxine & Jesse Whitney Museum and the Valdez Museum & Historical Archive teamed up to bring National Archaeology Day to Valdez, Alaska. A family-friendly scavenger hunt was held between the two museums. Kids and their parents enjoyed seeking artifacts from their photos contrasted with the historical artifact. A mosaic tile making project was part of the festivities at the Whitney. It was a wonderful way to spend a blustery Saturday afternoon!
University of Alaska Anchorage hosted International Archaeology Day on October 19th.
The Northeast Region of the Florida Public Archaeology Network hosted an Archaeology Bar Crawl through downtown St. Augustine in honor of International Archaeology Day.
The Commission to Preserve National Monuments celebrated the International Archaeology Day with a series of events titled "Cultural Memory, a Vanishing Treasure: Archaeological Heritage of BiH."
