Archeology Fair at Fort Concho!
Can you dig it? Why, yes, you can … if you’re at the 14th annual Archeology Fair on Sept. 28 at Fort Concho.
Sponsored by the Concho Valley Archeology Society, the free event from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. gives guests of all ages and interests the chance to experience the diversity of cultures of long-ago inhabitants of the region.
Hands-on activities include digging for “clues in the dirt,” metal detecting, and making baskets and medicine bags. Other offerings will focus on flint-knapping, prehistoric food preparation (with edible samples), lace-making, gourd and pottery painting, spinning, fire-starting, basket-weaving, the shooting of bows and arrows, and atlatl-throwing.
The fort is located at 630 S. Oakes St. The archeology fair will be in the barracks courtyard near the back of the Fort Concho grounds, across from the stables.
