The Archaeology Roadshow is going “on the road” again.  The final Roadshow of 2019 will be in Burns/Hines on June 29, 2019 from 10 am-3 pm at the Hines City Park. Our event is being held along with the Cultural Crawl—a celebration honoring local craft and the arts, funded by the Cultural Coalition and the Oregon Cultural trust. Together, the Roadshow and Cultural Crawl are a great opportunity to support heritage and local craft. There will be a panel of experts to identify any artifacts visitors bring to the event.

This event is free and open to all.
