Public Archaeology Day Nov. 5

On Saturday, Nov. 5, dig into Public Archaeology Day at the David Caldwell Historic Park.

The event, which is free and open to the public, features fossil casts, ground penetrating radar demonstrations, replicas of Greek and Roman artifacts, kids’ activities and posters by UNCG archaeology faculty showing their work in Greece, Syria, Turkey, Africa, Peru and the Triad.

According to Classical Studies professor and event organizer Dr. Joanne Murphy, the event will show how students are included in UNCG archaeology research and will reveal “what we share with our ancestors and how we have changed.” Attendees will have the opportunity to meet UNCG archaeologists and Greensboro historians, and will find out how archaeology is accessible locally.

Public Archaeology Day runs 1 to 4 p.m. at the David and Rachel Caldwell Historic Park, located at 3211 W. Cornwallis Dr. in Greensboro. It is co-sponsored by the Greensboro Chapter of the Archaeological Institute of America, UNCG Archaeology Program, and the Greensboro Historical Museum.
