For the second year, the Edmonds Historical Museum will have its Archaeology at Night event. It’s 5-8 p.m. Friday, May 3.

Local state, federal and professional archaeologists will be on hand to showcase projects and artifacts collections in the greater Puget Sound area. They will also offer artifact identification.

“Last year was fantastic,” said Jason Cooper, cultural resources lead for WSDOT’s Northwest Region.

“I really enjoyed solving questions surrounding items visitors brought in for identification – especially several fruit and vegetable jars. I look forward to engaging the Edmonds community, who are savvy practitioners of historic preservation and conservation.”

The public is encouraged to bring a maximum of two items for artifact identification. No value or authentications will be given at this event – artifact identification is for educational purposes only.

This all-ages event is free.

The Edmonds Historical Museum is at 118 Fifth Ave N, Edmonds.
