A celebration of all things archaeology will take place during the 7th Annual Archaeology Fair at the Wyoming Territorial Prison State Historic Site in Laramie Saturday, September 25. This event is free and open to the public from 10 a.m-3 p.m.

The fair provides unique fun hands-on learning experiences for all ages, including flint knapping, atlatl throwing, pottery making, hide painting, soapstone carving, and more.

Do you have a question about something archaeological? Throughout the day, attendees will have an opportunity to meet local archaeologists, ask questions, find answers, and get "hands-on" with these experts.

The Archaeology Fair is held in conjunction with Wyoming Archaeology Awareness Month held annually during September. On September 1, Gov. Mark Gordon proclaimed September Wyoming Archaeology Awareness Month.
