Join us for a day of family fun celebrating and learning about archaeology!
The Wyoming Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources is hosting an Archaeology Fair to coincide with Wyoming Archaeology Month. This event—to be held at the Territorial Prison State Historic Site in Laramie on September 10, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.—will showcase Wyoming’s rich cultural heritage from prehistory to the present day.
The fair will provide a fun hands-on learning experience for all ages. Planned events include flint knapping, atlatl throwing, and pottery making demonstrations, as well as hide painting, cordage making, soapstone carving and more.
The fair will feature the Wind River Dancers who will perform a variety of American Indian dance styles; Buffalo Bill Boycott, songster, fiddler, historian, and winner of the Western Music Association Yodeler Award; and David Osmundsen demonstrating traditional 19th century blacksmithing.
