Join us for a day of family fun celebrating and learning about archaeology!

Wyoming State Parks and Cultural Resources is hosting an Archaeology Fair to coincide with Wyoming Archaeology Month. This event—to be held at the Territorial Prison State Historic Site in Laramie on September 12, 2015 from 10AM to 3 PM—will showcase Wyoming’s rich cultural heritage from prehistory to the present day.

The fair will provide a unique and fun hands-on learning experience for all ages. Planned events include flint knapping, atlatl throwing, and pottery making demonstrations, as well as hide painting, cordage making, soapstone carving and more. The fair will also feature the Wind River Dancers, Eastern Shoshone storyteller Willie LeClair, and David Osmundsen demonstrating traditional 19th century blacksmithing. Throughout the fair, attendees will have an opportunity to meet local archaeologists, ask questions, find answers, and get “hands-on” with these experts.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information visit our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/events/1626132080937897/.
