For the past several years, the Governors of Kentucky have proclaimed September Kentucky Archaeology Month. In accordance with this proclamation, “professional archaeologists continue to work with the public to provide new insights into our collective past and greatly expand our knowledge about different cultural traditions.” In this spirit, he Kentucky Heritage Council/State Historic Preservation Office has created a blog, “30 Days of Archaeology,” as a contribution to Archaeology Month events sponsored by the Kentucky Organization of Professional Archaeologists (KyOPA). Blog topics range from what makes archaeology important to society, to how cool it is for a student to find that first artifact.
At least one blog will be posted each day throughout the month. Please enjoy the posts and share them with as many people as you can. Blog posts include a variety of topics from what makes archaeology important to society to how cool it is to find your first artifact. Thank you to our contributors! Happy Kentucky Archaeology Month from the Kentucky Heritage Council archaeologists.
