Arch in the Park

Arch in the Park: Public Archaeology Day


What is archaeology? It’s more than just digging in the dirt! Come out to "Arch in the Park" to talk with the experts and learn all about what we do, why we do it, and how you can get involved! Activities, crafts, and fun for all ages! Learn how prehistoric peoples made their stone tools; identify artifacts from archaeological excavations; explore how underwater archaeologists study shipwrecks; discover how we preserve artifacts through conservation and gain more information through artifact reconstruction. This FREE event will take place on the event lawn at Pullen Park just west of downtown Raleigh.
