Events at the Iron Hill Museum

May 1, 2016

2016 Archaeology & History Festival

This great event allows young and old to learn what it means to be an archaeologist and what interesting things we can find out about history through archaeology.

This year, our theme is "Tools of the Trade," with a special emphasis on Colonial and Native American crafts. Come see how tools were made in a blacksmith's forge, chunks of flint flake into spearpoints or arrowheads, barley become beer, and how log cabins are built, among many other crafts and trades. Once again, we will have a team of archaeologists on-site for an active dig that YOU can join in on! Who knows what you'll find! Participate in demonstrations of pit cooking, pinch pot making, and underwater archaeology. The event is Sunday, May 1, 2016, from noon until 4:30. Scouts in uniform (boys and girls) get in for free. Admission is $2 for members of the Delaware Academy of Science, $5 for adults and children over 4. Call the Science Center at (302)368-5703 for more information.
