Students in Archaeology with the AIA-Minnesota Society
November 13, 2012
The AIA-Minnesota Society celebrated National Archaeology Day with “Students in Archaeology: Poster Presentation of Recent Fieldwork,” a poster session featuring the archaeological work of eleven undergraduate and graduate students from five Minnesota colleges (Carleton, Gustavus Adolphus) and universities (Minnesota, St. Thomas, Concordia). The sites represented are in Bulgaria, Croatia, Israel, Italy, and Jordan. By presenting their work, students introduced their classmates, families and friends to the AIA and to its global work. The poster session brought together students and professionals from different institutions, as well as AIA-MN members, some parents and the public at large. Thanks to the Outreach Grant, the society was able to reimburse students for the costs of poster printing and serve refreshments at this event, which encouraged mingling and conversation.
More Collaborating Organizations have joined us for International Archaeology Day 2014!
We are so excited to be celebrating International Archaeology Day again this year on October 18, 2014 to raise awareness for archaeology and provide opportunities for the public to participate in archaeological activities.
In preparation for IAD 2014, we just set up a new webpage with precomposed e-mail invitations that you can easily send to your contacts.
