International Museum Day at SUSU: Students Will Make Stone Tools with Their Own Hands

Museum Day is celebrated around the world on May 18th. This date was officially made a holiday in 1977 and was becoming more and more popular ever since. SUSU features more than 10 exhibition venues and museums, so traditionally special events for students are held here on this day.

On May 18th an experimental archaeology master class will be held at Museum of Peoples and Technologies of the Ural Region. It will be delivered by a research fellow of the SUSU Research and Education Center for Eurasian Studies and Head of the Archeos Project Ivan Semyan.

The archaeologist will teach all those willing to make stone tools, which the master class participants will be able to keep as souvenirs.

Also the attendees will be able to see replicas of items of the Stone and of the Bronze Ages.

The master class will be held at 76 Lenin Prospect (Room 09, Basement Floor of the SUSU’s Main Building) on May 18th at 13:15 and 15:30.  

Excursions are available upon an appointment beforehand. Telephone: 267–96–16.
