Be sure to send your project name and date along so that these can be posted on the calendar. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Over September, many participated in Living Archeology Weekend. LAW is an award-winning and nationally recognized public archaeology event, and we’re looking forward to next year’s event!
From the Kentucky Hertiage Council: Have you been following KHC’s blog “30 days of Kentucky Archaeology”? If not you’re missing out on some fun and engaging (brief) essays about archaeological field work and research, and aspects of what professional archaeologists do (and endure) in the field. Strangers with guns, chiggers and ticks, and sharp pointy things? Yup. But also how professionals grapple with acknowledging contentious archaeological resources, why public archaeology is so important, and how technology is making it easier to tell these stories. Check it out!
