2022 Exhibits
The Archaeology of Water

Humans have a long and fundamental relationship to water. Our very existence depends on it – and all the plants and animals we rely on for sustenance require water too. We have built our communities next to oceans, rivers and springs. We’ve piped it, dammed it, dug canals to direct water to our crops. We’ve built canoes and ships to travel in it; and bridges to cross over it. Our essential connection to water makes it an ideal theme to explore through archaeology, traditional knowledge, and history.

Welcome to the 2022 Archaeology Roadshow, which provides just a sample of ways that water intersects the human story.
