The Paleo-Olympics is an annual interdisciplinary event that brings together everyone in the Grand Valley community with an interest in archaeology, history, or any aspect of the past. Everyone is welcome to join us -- have fun learning something new!

The 10th Annual Paleo-Olympics will be held on Friday, September 14, 2018.  From noon until 3:30 pm, on the Library North Lawn (just outside Kirkhof & the Library), join us for games, hands-on activities and crafts, and demonstrations of ancient skills. 

There are a wide variety of exciting events every year at the Paleo-Olympics.  Students can join in and play actual games from the past. We also have fun modern games inspired by the ancient world. Educational activities include demonstrations by professors and students:  we usually showcase a variety of ancient skills.  There are also crafts and puzzles.     Try your hand at repairing a pot or making a hieroglyphic cookie, play ancient games, and more!
