The Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at UCLA will open its doors for the 13th annual Open House. This tradition gives the general public, school children, students and interested individuals an opportunity to see what happens after the surveys and excavations from various part of the world are over, how the analysis is performed and how the data is stored for lectures and publications.
