Fort Frederica National Monument Superintendent Mary Beth Wester is pleased to announce the park's participation of National Archaeology Day on Saturday October 20, 2012 from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. The park staff will conduct hands-on activities related to archaeology education; however there will be no actual excavations or digging occurring on that day.
Wester says "the National Park Service, in conjunction with the Archaeological Institute of America, and other state and local organizations across the country, will celebrate National Archaeology Day on October 20." National Archaeology Day promotes awareness of archaeology in the United States and to provide educational opportunities for the public.
