Presenting the past and present

MARQUETTE — Past and present will all come together for Saturday’s International Archaeology Day and you can celebrate locally at the Marquette Regional History Center.

Hands–on activities, projects, booths, and actual artifacts will be open to every one of all ages to explore and learn more about what makes this day so important. You’ll also learn how to take care of artifacts should you find them.

“In general you can work to preserve your Upper Peninsula. If you find artifacts there are methods to make sure you are protecting the area. If you are on public land or private land you need to respect those rules and laws and really respect the artifacts if you are finding things,” said Betsy Rutz, Museum Educator.

This will be the museum’s fifth annual archaeology fair and will be from noon to three P.M. Tickets for the fair will also cover admission to the rest of the museum.
