Celebrate Kansas Archaeology Day at Cowley College

 

The Cowley Public Archaeology & History interest group, in association with the anthropology program at Cowley College, will celebrate Kansas Archaeology Day on Saturday, April 21. This event will be held in the Earle N. Wright Community Room, in the Brown Center on the Cowley College campus. Admission is free, and open to the public. Doors will open at 9 a.m., and the day’s activities will continue until 3 p.m.

The day’s schedule includes artifact displays, flint knapping demonstrations, presentations by Cowley College anthropology students, a noon luncheon and keynote presentation, door prizes and children’s activities.

Since 1992, April has been designated Kansas Archaeology month to celebrate the rich historical and prehistoric cultural traditions of the state. This is the first collaboration between Cowley College and the Public Archaeology & History group for a public event, and marks the first observance of Kansas Archaeology Day by the college’s anthropology program. The program plans to make this an annual event at the college.
