Take time on Sat., Aug. 5 (10 a.m. – 4 p.m.), to visit Archaeology Day at Cahokia Mounds in Collinsville, IL. Learn about the amazing civilization that lived there about 1,000 years ago. You’ll see ancient craft demonstrations, archaeological techniques, artifact processing, and TOURS of excavations! Several hands-on activities. For years, we’ve visited with University of Bologna (IT) archaeology professor Davide Domenici and his graduate students as they spent part of their summers at their Cahokia digs. The more you become acquainted with Cahokia Mounds’ history and study the pieces found there, the more you want to know. Admission free. Donations accepted.
