Let's Get Archaeological
Who built it?
What does it teach us about them? About ourselves?
Should we preserve it?
Can you think of other questions archaeology asks, and answers?
Today is the first ever National Archaeology Day, a celebration of archaeology and the thrill of discovery. The closest event to us is in Pacific Palisades, but you can participate in an online scavenger hunt or just snoop around the website of the Archaeological Institute of America and see what you think.
If you don't think there's archaeology in Pasadena, all you have to do is get off the beaten path in the Arroyo. You'll find old stone walls, hidden stairways and even the remains of an amphitheater. Forget snooping around the virtual world. You can snoop around the real one.
