Fort Stanwix National Monument and Rome Historical Society will host Archaeology Day in celebration of International Archaeology Day, on Saturday, Sept. 25.
The event will have in-person components at Fort Stanwix and virtual components to participate at home.
International Archaeology Day is a celebration of archaeology and its contributions to society. Every October the Archaeological Institute of America and other similar organizations and educational institutions from around the world present archaeological programs and activities for people of all ages and interests.
Archaeological excavations in Rome have uncovered physical objects that help interpret the country’s rich local history.
RHS and FOST have designed several activities and displays to help participants learn about local archaeology.
To participate in person, visit Fort Stanwix between 10 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. for table talks with Fort Stanwix staff, an RHS artifact table, and various interactive activities.
To participate virtually, visit www.facebook.com/romehistorical and www.facebook.com/Fort.StanwixNPS for informational posts, at-home activities, and information about a Zoom presentation by local archaeologists.
The Rome Historical Society is located at 200 Church St. and is a non-profit organization. For more information, call 315-336-5870, like them on Facebook, or visit their website at www.romehistoricalsociety.org.
