From the landing of the Pilgrim’s at Plymouth Rock, to some of the most famous battles in US history, Massachusetts has a very rich archaeological history that deserves to be celebrated! Begun in 1992, archaeology month is a state-wide celebration of archaeology and historical preservation around the world! Schools, museums, and other organizations will be holding special events around the state where you can learn about everything from different archaeological projects happening across the state, to what happens in an archaeological lab. No matter your age or location, you’re bound to find an activity the whole family can enjoy.
