Sunday, November 4th; FREE Public Archaeology Event for Children and Families

Hi everyone!

Sunday, November 4th, Stanford University, History San José, and the Chinese Historicaland Cultural Project will be hosting another Public Archaeology Event that is FREE and open to the general public. This hands-on event is designed to introduce children from age 4 to 12 and their families to archaeology. Children will participate in “mock” excavations and study authentic archaeological artifacts to learn about San Jose’s hidden history. It is a fun and educational event for the entire family!

The event is part of an ongoing series of programs organized by the Market Street Chinatown Archaeology Project, a research and education partnership among the Stanford Archaeology Center, History San José, and the Chinese Historical and Cultural Project. This event is sponsored by the Stanford Archaeology Center, the Department of Anthropology, the Haas Center for Public Service and Asian American Studies at Stanford University, as well as History San José.
