Event Details

Join in a fun community day at Auckland Museum as part of Archaeology Week 2022, a celebration of the importance of protecting our archaeological heritage and to promote the work of New Zealand archaeologists.

Have you ever wondered what it is like to be an archaeologist? What is archaeology? What do archaeologists do?

Archaeology is all about putting together clues to understand the past. Learn about the methods and technology the experts use to solve puzzles and discover how people used to live, what they ate and what tools they used. Hear talks by archaeologists and experience hands on activities such as sorting shell and bone, reconstructing pottery vessels, artefact analysis and so much more!

The event is FREE and no bookings are required and will take place in the Learning Labs on Level 1 of Auckland Museum from 10am to 3pm.
