Campus Martius Museum’s annual archaeology day will feature many new displays from private collections. Along with many prehistoric objects, several displays of materials recovered from 18th century native and military camps located in Ohio will be on display for the first time.

Throughout the day, several programs will be offered.

For young archaeologists, Andrea Keller, Grave Creek Archaeology Complex located at Moundsville, WV, and Glenna Hoff, Education/Program Director at Campus Martius Museum will be offering several hands on activities. This is a great opportunity for future archaeologists and paleontologists to examine artifacts by participating in simulated digs. Don’t miss the opportunity to handle real dinosaur bones!

Have you ever wondered how flint tools such as knife blades and arrowheads were made? Several flint-nappers will be on hand demonstrating the skills that were necessary to make these important objects.

William Pickard staff archaeologist from the Ohio History Connection will be available throughout the day to identify objects. He invites the public to bring in their finds for examination.

Join us for an exciting day of Digging the Past at Campus Martius Museum. Inquiries? Contact Bill Reynolds at 740-373-3750.
