It was an amazing turnout at the Museum of the Highwood as community members turned out in droves to have their stones and bones collections looked at.

The Archaeological Society of Alberta, Calgary Centre, were expecting 20 people, and over 200 people turned out on Saturday. The event continues on Sunday.

Archaeologists and a paleontologist from the Royal Alberta Museum were on hand to help with the identification process.

Janet Blakey, with the society, said they looked at a large variety of stones and bones.

"We had a variety of stone tools brought in from at least eight thousand years ago."

Lots of fossils were brought in including some fossil corral.

They also hosted a stone tool making workshop that was sold out with 30 people taking part Saturday and Sunday.

There is still time to take part as the event also runs on Sunday, March 26 from 10 A.M. to 3 P.M.
