International Archaeology Day

Celebrate International Archaeology Day

Join archeologists and archeology lovers around the world in celebrating International Archaeology Day every year on the third Saturday of October.

The Archaeological Institute of America organizes International Archaeology Day, and the National Park Service is an official collaborating organization.

Don't forget to add metadata to your article. This is where you select tags and related parks so your article can appear on sites across NPS.gov. It's also where you add a listing description (required) and image, which appear in shared content listings and the API.
