Have you ever looked out over the beautiful vistas of Douglas County and wondered what it was like when people first traveled these lands? Are you fascinated by archaeology and curious about what we can learn from prehistoric artifacts?

Don’t miss your chance to experience Colorado’s rich past firsthand at Colorado Parks and Wildlife’s 2022 International Archaeology Day Expo from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 15, at Roxborough Intermediate School, 7370 Village Circle East in Littleton.

This free Expo is educational and fun for all ages. Exhibitors will provide demonstrations, hands-on activities, and informational displays about archaeology, historical archaeology, and cultural sites throughout Colorado. Professional archaeologists will deliver adult-oriented lectures.

The children’s area features ancient hands-on crafts including acorn grinding. Nearby cultural locations are providing on-site tours and activities in conjunction with the Expo. These auxiliary sites include Roxborough State Park, Lamb Spring Archaeological Preserve, and Ken-Caryl Ranch Bradford II and III sites.

Reservations are required for lectures and most tours – click here for registration links.

Parking in the vicinity of this event is limited. If you live within walking distance of the Roxborough Intermediate School, we encourage you to enjoy the walk to the event with your friends, family, and neighbors, if you are able.
