This Saturday, October 19th, is International Archaeology Day and organizations around the world will be commemorating the event. Visit the Archaeological Institute of America’s website for information on happenings across the United States and abroad. There’s something for everyone!
In honor of International Archaeological Day, AntiquityNOW presents Eternity, an original submission to our Today’s Muse section, which showcases creative endeavors with a distinctive historical perspective. See how archaeology inspires modern fiction in this evocative and poignant story about an archaeologist who discovers he has more in common with an ancient Egyptian scribe than he ever imagined.
