Tomorrow’s events will take place in a variety of locations.

AIA Narragansett has planned a number of activities at the Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World (Rhode Island Hall, left side of map). In addition, the institute has an “open house” that day, so in addition to our activities please feel free to check out the numerous display cases houses items from the Institute’s collection.

The events inside the building include:

Welcome Area: Information and light refreshments (main foyer)
The Bone Lab: Experts will be on hand to show specimens and talk about how we answer complex archaeological questions using human and animal remains. (mezzanine; upstairs)
The Material Culture Lab: Meet our experts on coins and pottery and find out about daily life in the ancient world. (seminar room; downstairs)
Young Archaeologists’ Day: Young archaeologists grades 7-12 are invited to join us for lunch from 12-2 to find out more about archaeology and how they can get involved. (common room)

Events outside include:

College Hill excavation: Stop by Brown University’s search for the home of the first university President, from 10-4PM. (outdoors; quiet green)
Build an Ancient House: Help lay out floorplans of houses from different civilizations, from ancient Egypt to Greece and Rome. (outdoors; quiet green)

Public restrooms are located on the basement level and there is an elevator.

Our friends at the Haffenreffer Museum (right side of map) also have activities planned; for a full schedule of their events see here.

We look forward to seeing you there!
