Co-hosted by the Ontario Archaeological Society – Ottawa Chapter, our Public Archaeology Day provides a hands-on approach to learning about this science. Throughout the morning there will be a variety of information stations manned by professional and avocational archaeologists ready to share their knowledge, demonstrate techniques and answer your questions.

Participate in simulated archaeology excavations where children play the role of archaeologist. At the pot-building station participants are guided through the process of creating a coil pot of their own. The showcase will feature artifacts recovered at various local archaeological excavations over the past 20 years. Dig down, dig back!

In the evening, author and archaeologist Rory MacKay will deliver an illustrated talk: Lessons About Cultural Heritage and Archaeology I Have Learned Along the Bonnechere River.

Check out our campsite availability or book a daily vehicle permit up to 5 days in advance. Make your Reservations Online or call: 888-668-7275.
