On October 14th the crew from the Bureau of Land Management’s Eagle Lake Field Office held a special Archaeology Day event at Hobo Camp as part of California Archaeology Month, an annual observance of the California Society for Archaeology designed to call attention to the study of ancient societies through examination of what remains behind.

With nearly a dozen learning stations set up by the BLM staffers, participants had a variety of activities to choose from, including a chance to try using an atlatl to throw a spear at a target, learn about orienteering and how to use a compass and try out excavation methods used by archaeologists. More than 100 folks showed up at the day-long workshop to learn more.

“This event is perfect for families,” explains BLM Archaeologist Marilla Martin. “We’ll give everyone a chance to try archaeology excavation techniques and talk about the artifacts and the important information they provide to us.”
