Saturday, July 13, 2019


Location: St. Anselm’s Hall, Kampsville, IL

Date: Saturday, July 13, 2019

Times: 10 am - 4 pm

Description: For over 10,000 years humans have continuously called the Illinois River Valley home. With the fertile land and diverse resources there was no reason to migrate elsewhere. The Center for American Archeology works to preserve this heritage, train future archeologists and educate the public.

Archeology Day is a full day of archaeological site tours, excavation demonstrations, informative displays, and lectures on the cultural occupation of Native Americans in the Illinois River Valley. Hands-on pre-historic technologies that include pottery making, basket weaving, and making dream catchers make this a fun and educational event for all ages and interest levels.

This event is in part supported by a grant from the Illinois Humanities Council, the Illinois General Assembly, and the National Endowment for the Humanities.
