The first Archaeology Fair for the Riverside/Southern California society of the Archaeology Institute of America was held on October 19th at the offices of Statistical Research, (SRI), in Redlands.
The fair’s exhibitors were from academic departments, museums, avocational organizations and CRM firms. They brought something for everyone; from elementary and middle school students and Boy Scouts to high school students looking for university information and college students and young professional looking for career guidance to the general public of all ages.
Attendees got a tour of SRI’s archaeology lab, make pottery, make and write on ancient Roman style tablets, classify historic artifacts, and learn about archaeology projects in California, Mexico, and the Near East.
A special thanks goes to our host, Statistical Research, Inc. and especially Tamara M. Serrao-Leiva, and SRI President, Donn Grenda.
