This weekend kids will have an opportunity to explore the fascinating field of archaeology during a special event at the Campus Martius Museum.
The Museum’s Glenna Hoff says students are invited to learn the art of flintknapping – or how to make arrowheads or spear points – and make one to take home.
“We’re also going to have different artifact exhibits set up. Also, Bill Picard from the Ohio Historical Society is giving a special presentation about an ancient moose that was discovered up around Akron,” shares Hoff. “Marietta College’s Geology Club will also bring some artifacts they’ve uncovered as well as doing a simulated dig.”
Hoff additionally invites anyone who’s dug up an unusual object and wants it identified.
Displays and activities will be available this Saturday, from 10 am till 3 pm.
Regular admission to the museum applies – children participate for $4 and adults for $7.
