Our November 18th event will feature over twenty pop-up exhibits and hands-on activities hosted by archaeologists and heritage specialists from universities, Tribes, federal agencies, private companies, museums, and nonprofit organizations.
The Roadshow introduces visitors of all ages to local heritage and the science and humanity of archaeology in a fun, engaging way, while instilling a sense of stewardship for cultural resources. This year’s theme “The Archaeology of Transportation” is designed to get visitors thinking about the universal importance of transportation to human existence – in the past and today.
