PSU Archaeology Roadshow

Do you have bones in your basement, artifacts in your attic, or fossils above your fireplace that you want to learn more about? Or are you just interested in learning more about archaeology? Then you want to come to the free Archaeology Roadshow, Saturday, March 24th, from 10:00 to 2:00, at Portland State University, just steps away from the Portland Farmers Market on the Park Blocks. Experts will be on hand from PSU and the community to tell you the story behind your prehistoric or historic object--such as how old it is, how it functioned, or if a bone, what animal it's from. No appraisals will be given.

Besides artifact identification, we'll have several exhibits, demonstrations and hands-on activities for adults and kids -- like stone tool making, animal bone identification, and local archaeology projects. Come for 5 minutes or stay the whole time, and remember...it is totally free to attend!

Where: PSU Campus, Cramer Hall 41

When: Saturday, March 24, 10:00am-2:00pm

Who: Adults and kids--anyone who wants to learn some cool things about archaeology and our connections to the past
