FREE Wampanoag Heritage and Archaeology Fair at the Robbins

Mass Archaeology invites you to the Robbins Museum of Archaeology in Middleborough on Saturday, October 15, for the Wampanoag Heritage and Archaeology Fair.

Join us for a celebration of national Archaeology Month from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and learn about Indigenous arts, culture, and history! Tour the Robbins Museum to see thousands of artifacts dating back nearly 12,000 years. Try hands-on activities that get you closer to the science of archaeology. Make your own wampum pendant and hear about the history of this cultural material. And, meet with professional archaeologists from across Massachusetts, who can identify your artifacts.

For more information, visit our website at, find us on social media (FacebookInstagram, and YouTube), or email The event is FREE, but donations are welcome to support our statewide mission to foster respect for the archaeological heritage of the Commonwealth through research, education, and preservation.
