September is Archaeology Awareness Month and the Rockpile Museum will be sharing virtual interactives, activities, and resources on the Campbell County Government Facebook page, Rockpile Museum YouTube channel, and our website (https://www.ccgov.net/2125/Rockpile-Learning-Lab) throughout September. There will also be several in-person events, as well as activity bags for at-home archaeology adventures!
Archaeology take-home activity bags can be picked up at the Rockpile Museum starting September 7th. Supplies are limited, so get your bag as soon as possible. Bags will also include a competitive activity that has the chance for a fun archaeology-themed prize! Age limit is 5 and up. Three prize winners will be chosen at the end of September.
For in-person events, join us at the museum on September 18th at 7pm for a presentation by State Archaeologist Spencer Pelton about an archaeological site near Buffalo, Wyoming. Event capacity is limited to 30 people, so make sure to contact Cara Reeves at the museum to reserve your place.
On display at the Rockpile Museum from mid-September through October 31st will be a traveling exhibit from the Wyoming State Museum titled “Artifact: A Cultural Heritage.” This large collection of Wyoming images by photographer Mike McClure celebrates the enormous diversity of Wyoming’s prehistoric and historic landscape. It consists of 60 images and text panels covering northern and central Wyoming. This exhibit was made possible by a grant from the Wyoming Council for the Humanities.
