About

A trowel, brush and compass.

Experience an epic day of archaeological events with the family! Activities are scattered across two museums to explore Native North American, Central American, Egyptian, Mesopotamian, and Mediterranean archaeology. Throw a spear with a spear thrower, try your hand at flintknapping a stone blade, experience the Great Sphinx in augmented reality, write ancient cuneiform symbols in clay with a stylus, and use a pipe-stem dating tool to find the age of colonial artifacts. Talk to many student archaeologists who excavate in locations around the world.
