International Archeology Day

Join the National Park Service and the Archaeological Institute of America in celebrating International Archaeology Day.

Archeological places across the nation will offer all kinds of special events, from public archeology days to speakers to exhibits. Learn more about the ways that archeology helps us to learn about the past, and talk to real archeologists!

It's likely that events are happening near you, and not only at NPS parks, but state parks, National Register or National Historic Landmark properties, museums and other sites. Visit the International Archaeology Day interactive map of things to do and places to see. There’s something for everyone!
