International Archaeology Day, October 19, 2013
October 19, 2013 is the third annual International Archaeology Day, a day when the excitement of archaeological discovery will be celebrated by AIA local societies and other archaeological groups across North America and around the world. In honor of this event the AIA-Milwaukee Society and UWM's Archaeological Research Laboratory are sponsoring an Open House at the Archaeology Lab where Ancient Games and Puzzles will be explored. Local archaeologists from UW-Milwaukee, Marquette University, and elsewhere will engage visitors in Ancient Games and Puzzles from around the world. This is your chance to have fun playing games while you learn who invented some of the games we still play today, how old they are, where and by whom they were played in the past, and-most important for archaeology-how do we know all this?
International Archaeology Day will be celebrated here in Milwaukee on Saturday, October 19, 2013, from 1:00 – 4:00pm. Come to UWM's Archaeology Lab, 2nd floor, Sabin Hall (3413 North Downer Ave.) and join in the fun. Free and open to the public. Fun for all!
Note: Since space in the lab is tight it would help us to know approximately how many are planning to attend. If you would like to come (no commitment) please let us know how many are in your party. For more information or to pre-register contact Bettina Arnold at email@example.com. We hope to see you and your families and friends there!
