BLM Invites You to Free Archaeology Day at Hobo Camp October 14th

A hands-on look into the lives of northeast California’s early inhabitants will highlight Archaeology Day, a free, family-friendly event, Saturday, October 14th, at the Hobo Camp Area along the Susan River just west of Susanville.

Events run from 10:00a.m. to 2:00p.m.

Marilla Martin, an archaeologist with the Bureau of Land Management’s Eagle Lake Field Office, said participants can try their hand at using an atlatl to throw a spear, learn about orienteering and how to use a compass, and try out excavation methods used by archaeologists.

The fourth annual event is offered through a partnership involving the BLM, Susanville Indian Rancheria and the Lassen National Forest.

The educational field-day is 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.
