International Archaeology Day at the Oshawa Community Museum
October 21, 2013
For International Archaeology, the Oshawa Community Museum offered guests a passport to take around to different archaeology themed stations throughout the Museum.
There was a craft station, guess the artifact, mapping demonstrations, tools of the trade, shoe box dig stations, artifacts discovered and a lecture from an Archaeologist.
Having excavated on our site before, this event allowed the museum to bring out artifacts they had discovered, discuss archaeology in Oshawa and debunk some of the myths about this profession.
More Collaborating Organizations have joined us for International Archaeology Day 2014!
We are so excited to be celebrating International Archaeology Day again this year on October 18, 2014 to raise awareness for archaeology and provide opportunities for the public to participate in archaeological activities.
In preparation for IAD 2014, we just set up a new webpage with precomposed e-mail invitations that you can easily send to your contacts.
