“International Archaeology Day Open House at Old Pueblo Archaeology Center,” 2201 W. 44th Street, Tucson

9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Free

Tucson’s nonprofit Old Pueblo Archaeology Center invites you to celebrate International Archaeology Day by joining us for a fun-filled day of hands-on archeology activities for children and adults alike, including participating in a simulated archaeological excavation, playing games, making crafts, and watching demonstrations. Come try your hand at creating your own petroglyph, playing traditional games, and more. Watch a flintknapper show how to make an arrowhead! Play traditional Native American calendar-stick and other games on the ground, color artifacts on coloring pages, grind corn using an ancient metate and mano, practice bopping bunnies with rabbit-throwing-sticks! Learn how to make your own petroglyphs, hand-built pottery, stone jewelry, cordage and agave rope, and dance rattles that you can take home!

Free to the public. No reservations are needed. For more information contact Old Pueblo Archaeology Center at 520-798-1201 or info@oldpueblo.org.
