Experience events that capture the spirit and vitality of the Presidio... past and present.
Have you ever wondered what an archaeologist actually does? Did you know that there are archaeologists working and studying right here in San Francisco? To find out more, come join Presidio archaeologists at International Archaeology Day.
The team will host activities for all ages. See archaeology in action as Presidio Trust archaeologists uncover the foundations of the Spanish colonial settlement that was El Presidio de San Francisco, and don’t forget to view the adobe walls of the original Spanish fort that are still standing inside the Presidio Officers’ Club. You will have the chance to follow the journey of an artifact after it is discovered to our outdoor lab, through our state-of-the-art lab, and into our collections storage. We will also have a craft that the whole family can do together, and you will have the chance to get YOUR hands dirty making adobe bricks!
