2020 Festival Event:

Become an Archaeologist!

Have you ever wondered how people lived in the past? Archaeologists are the detectives of science working to answer this question. Join Emory University experts for a set of activities where you can learn how to extract DNA, perform chemical analysis to discover the uses of artifacts, and put ancient objects and skeletons back together like a puzzle. Parents and kids alike can ask Emory anthropologists about their work and hear about the latest discoveries in the field.

Getting there: The Inman Park MARTA station on the blue/green rail line is closest to East Atlanta Village, but you'll need to take a bus or request a Lyft from there. Take MARTA bus 4, 32, or 74, then exit at Moreland Ave SE @ Woodland Ave SE. Head north on Moreland Ave SE toward Emerson St SE for 0.1 miles, then turn right onto Emerson St.
