The Rutherford County Archaeological Society is once again proud to present our annual free and family-friendly “Archaeology Day.”
It is fun and learning for all ages!
There are Tennessee archaeology and history displays, lots of artifacts and bones, demonstrations, hands-on activities, crafts to make, and more! Several middle Tennessee archaeology and history groups are participating, including the TN State Museum, Earth Experience Natural History Museum, Stones River National Battlefield Park, Old Stone Fort State Archaeological Park, Tennessee Council for Professional Archaeology, MTSU Archaeology Dept., MTAS Anthropology Society, Oaklands Mansion, TDOT Archaeology Division, and other local groups and individuals. This year we also have expert flintknapper Michael Miller, who will demonstrate how arrowheads and spearpoints are hand-fashioned from stone. This is a FREE event and there is something for all ages, children and adults alike. We look forward to seeing you at the educational and fun, Archaeology Day!

The Rutherford County Archaeological Society (RCAS) is an all-volunteer nonprofit 501(c)(3) educational and service organization promoting archaeology awareness and the preservation and protection of our archaeological and historical resources.
