“El Paso Museum of Archaeology” by Susan Barnum
The El Paso Museum of Archaeology invites the public to celebrate International Archaeology Day at the museum from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, October 21.
“Texas Archaeology Month and International Archaeology Day provide us with a great opportunity to introduce people to this science with activities that will let them get their hands dirty,” said Director of the El Paso Museum of Archaeology Jeff Romney.
Visitors can enjoy archery, mock excavations and other hands-on activities.
There will also be a live pottery firing demonstration and films in the museum auditorium. International Archaeology Day also falls within Texas Archaeology Awareness Month.
There is no charge for admission.
