This year's Archeology Days dates are June 29 and June 30! Join us for a weekend of fun, games, education, and so much more. We will be observing the 20th anniversary of the opening of the Thomsen Center Archeodome, where our excavation site is located. Special guests include author Deb Watley, whose latest book, The Field Notes of Gwen Bell: Summer Ruins, has received rave reviews. She will be signing copies of her book. We will have flint knappers, Dave Huebner returns to demonstrate how pottery was made 1,000 years ago, Mike Marshall returns for Lakota Games, and so many more! There will be a lot to do and experience for children and adults! We will have a program for you as soon as possible.
Your support is important to the 1,700 schoolchildren who visit our site each year!
