FDF and GARS host an open house event at the site where the public can visit the archaeology lab & museum, see media presentations, and tour the site, including the public archaeology activity.
In this two-day Teacher Workshop Event (K-12 teachers), teachers learn a brief history of the site; get hands-on experience with archaeological techniques and excavation, and laboratory procedures; review AKS and curriculum standards; and write lessons to incorporate in their classroom.
The First Weekend of October, FDF and GARS brings our museum wall tent to the Historic Winn House for the Gwinnett Historical Society's Annual Elisha Winn Fair. For details on Fair see: http://www.gwinnetths.org/winnfair.html.
The Third Weekend of October is the Foundation's annual Frontier Faire held with the Gwinnett Archaeological Research Society (GARS), and AIA's (American Institute of Archaeology) National Archaeology Day. It includes a two-day (Friday and Saturday) mini field school that is open to local college students and is led by GSU Professor Jeff Glover and Fort Daniel archaeologists. The Faire, Saturday, features public archaeology, demonstrators, en-actors, displays, and media presentations on Fort Daniel and archaeological methods, as well as a session of our 6-part Blacksmith Training Program, instructed by Doc Watson.
November is National American Indian Heritage Month. The Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum join in paying tribute to the rich ancestry and traditions of Native America. FDF and GARS join in this tribute by hosting a Native American Heritage Celebration at the Fort Daniel Historic Site.
