Arizona Archaeology Expo
March 5, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
The Arizona Archaeology Expo is the main event of the annual Arizona Archaeology and Heritage Awareness Month in March. Held in a different community each year, the Expo features archaeology-related hands-on activities, craft demonstrations, and other fun and educational events. The theme for this year’s event is “Heritage Matters: The Past Begins Today.” The Expo also features displays by archaeological and historical organizations, museums, Native American tribes, state and federal agencies, and others, allowing visitors to participate as archaeologists might in their research today, or make crafts and tools that teach how prehistoric Native Americans and other early inhabitants survived in the Southwest. Cultural and historical demonstrations, talks by archaeologists, and interactive activities will help make the past come alive, and special archaeology tours in Casa Grande Ruins National Monument will be offered. Free-prize raffles will occur throughout the day. This free event will be held on Saturday March 5, 2016 at Casa Grande Ruins National Monument, 1100 W. Ruins Drive, Coolidge, Arizona, 9 a.m.-4 p.m. This is not an Old Pueblo Archaeology Center-sponsored event.
