International Archaeology Day and the Bill Melbourne Collection

International Archaeology Day is held each year on the third Saturday of October.

International Archaeology Day is a celebration of archaeology and the thrill of discovery. Every October archaeological organizations across Canada, the United States, and abroad present archaeological programs and activities for people of all ages and interests. Whether it is a family-friendly archaeology fair, a guided tour of a local archaeological site, a simulated dig, a lecture or a classroom visit from an archaeologist, the interactive, hands-on International Archaeology Day programs provide the chance to indulge your inner Indiana Jones.

As part of International Archaeology Day the NLAS is releasing a new Community Collections Archaeological Research Project (CCARP) based on a collection donated by Bill Melbourne from Burgeo.  We want to thank Bill for sharing this collection with the NLAS; in so doing, he provided us with new information on archaeological sites in the Burgeo area.

Please keep in mind that our aim is not to encourage private collection of artifacts, but rather to record these undocumented sites, as well as educate and inform people about what to do if you find an archaeological site.
