2014 Archaeology Fair

‘Dig up’ information on archaeology, history, culture, and more!
The Archaeology Society of Staten Island and local chapter of the Archaeology Institute of America (AIA) are excited to announce an Archaeology Fair to be held on Sunday, April 27th, from 11AM to 3PM, in the Wagner College Spiro Sports Center Gymnasium. Join Wagner College students and professors as they explore ancient cultures of Egypt and Mesopotamia, analyze human remains, and join them as they dig their way through a mock excavation to find interesting artifacts! Many other hands-on activities, informative talks, and authentic artifact displays will be featured at this event as well by local archaeologists, historians, museum educators, and scholars from organizations in the greater New York City area.
This fair which is free and open to the public will include an array of informative, interactive, and fun programs designed to increase awareness of the fields of archaeology, historic preservation, and global anthropology among children and families. Some of the organizations present at this year’s fair will include the Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art, National Lighthouse Museum, Staten Island History Hunters, the Staten Island Museum, Staten Island Geological Society, as well as Educators from Historic Richmond Town. You won’t want to miss out on this great opportunity to take part in a day filled with learning and fun! Every family will leave a goodie bag of treasures!
