This is a great tidbit about archaeology from Upper Michigan Source! At the Marquette Regional History Museum in Michigan, people of all ages got a chance to appreciate the past by celebrating International Archaeology Day. Gathered among the archaeology professionals were archaeology students and kids. They had a chance to learn more about the field of archaeology itself. According to the article, the museum has been the place where archaeologists displayed their wide variety of artifacts dating from the past few centuries to over 12,000 years ago!
Seeing the wide variety of artifacts, gives the kids a chance to understand more about culture. Some of the artifacts brought in include trade rings and fossils!
