Start your archeology adventure with Archeology Day at the Center for American Archeology. This annual event showcases the archeology of the Lower Illinois River Valley and surrounding areas. The event is free and open to the public.

Visitors can view and participate in numerous, hands-on activities. Tour active archeological excavations, wash recently excavated artifacts, watch and participate in flintknapping, spear throwing, ceramics, and more and test your skills with artifact identification. Expert craftspeople will demonstrate tool making, weaving, and other prehistoric technologies.

The 2020 event has been canceled. Please check back for updates on a 2021 date!
