Events

Archaeology of College Hill Community Archaeology Day

In honor of International Archaeology Day and Brown University’s Family Weekend, we invite everyone to come watch Brown students digging (yes, really digging)! This year, students will be excavating at the Moses Brown School. Stop by the corner of Hope Street and Lloyd Avenue(with your family or on your own) during the dig between 11am and 2pm to see what we’re up to or try your hand at digging.

International Archaeology Day: Joukowsky Institute Open House

Come visit the Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World in Rhode Island Hall. Faculty and students will be on hand to tour you through the building, as well as to show you artifacts and images, both from some of our current fieldwork (in the Caribbean, Italy, Turkey, and Rhode Island) and from the Institute’s collections.
