Spokane Archaeology Day

  • The Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture 2316 West 1st Avenue Spokane, WA, 99201 United States (map)

The Association for Washington Archaeology invites you to travel back in time and immerse yourself in the history and culture of the Columbia Plateau's native people during Spokane Archaeology Day on The Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture (MAC) grounds.

 Open to the public, this family-friendly event will allow visitors to experience the methods archaeologists use to learn about the heritage of the Inland Northwest.

Among the activities, visitors will be able to conduct an archaeological survey and a mock excavation; learn how to identify historic artifacts; make tools through flint knapping; and practice zooarchaeology by studying animal bones. You're going to dig it!
