Join Archaeology in the Community (AITC) for the 8th Annual Day of Archaeology Festival at Dumbarton House!
The International Day of Archaeology aims to raise public awareness of the relevance and importance of archaeology in the modern world. This festival is dedicated to the archaeology, history, and preservation of Washington, DC area and invites the public to learn in fun and interactive ways. For the 8th year, AITC is bringing together archaeology organizations from DC, Maryland, and Virginia to celebrate the Day of Archaeology Festival.
This event is a fun-filled day for both adults and children. Children can get hands-on with in mock-excavations, crafts, and 3D printed artifacts. Speak with archaeologists in person and learn about their projects locally and globally. There will be live music, family activities, face painting and food trucks for all to enjoy.
The Day of Archaeology Festival is a great way to learn about DC’s local history and visit Dumbarton House!
