January 19, 2014 

The Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture will hosts its 29th annual Artifact ID Day on Saturday.

Staff experts will be on hand from 1-3:30 p.m. to help identify objects. They will also provide information about Native American, Pacific Island and Southeast Asian baskets, blankets and cultural artifacts, as well as archaeological materials, fossils, rocks, minerals and bones. The experts will not provide any appraisals, nor will they authenticate items for sale.

The event is included in museum admission and is free for Burke members or with a University of Washington ID. There is a limit of three items per visitor.
