Historic Cane Hill College, 14219 College Rd, Canehill, AR, 72717
With its storied human history, Historic Cane Hill goes hand-in-hand with archeology. Archeology Day at Historic Cane Hill is a chance for families to learn how human-made Habitat is an important part of the landscape. The Arkansas Archeological Survey and Historic Cane Hill are partnering to offer learning opportunities for all ages on October 8.
Participants can talk with an archeologist starting at 12:30, rotate between different activities from 1 pm to 4 pm, and take a group walk to see one of Historic Cane Hill’s historic habitats, the Earle House, at 4 pm. Visitors of all ages will learn about the types of historical treasures unearthed in Cane Hill and how archaeologists find, identify, and catalog these artifacts.
Families are invited to participate in the full Archeology Day event or join in a few of the activities.
This program is presented as a part of our Habitat Humanities Series, focusing on the connection between human and natural habitats.
This project is supported in part by a grant from the Arkansas Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Thank you to all of our Habitat sponsors for helping us bring these experiences to Northwest Arkansas!
This event is free to attend, but we ask that you register here.
