Artifact Discovery Day

The State Museum Hosts Artifact Discovery Day

Have you found a unique object buried in the yard? The Tennessee State Museum will hold an Artifact Discovery Day for the public to bring in personally-owned artifacts to be identified by experts on Saturday, September 10, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The objects identified will include Native American artifacts, both prehistoric and historic pieces, and fossils. Archaeologists will identify, but not appraise, the objects.

The activity is being jointly sponsored by the Tennessee Division of Archaeology, whose archaeologists will conduct the sessions, and the State Museum. The event is being held in conjunction with September being named Tennessee Archaeology Awareness Month.

There is no charge for the identification or admission to the museum, and the event will take place near the Visitor’s Desk on Level D of the museum. On Saturdays, parking is free at state employee parking lots to the west of the State Capitol.
