Alabama Archaeological Society to Join in National Archaeology Day Festivities
February 24, 2012
The Alabama Archaeological Society (AAS) will join in the National Archaeology Day celebrations this year as a Collaborating Organization. Organized in 1954, the AAS promotes informed archaeological studies and the preservation of southeastern historic and prehistoric archaeological sites. AAS members participate in surface scouting, site mapping and reporting, artifact analysis, documentation, and the excavation and preservation of archaeological sites. This October, the AAS will host an event for National Archaeology Day.
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.
Project Archaeology at the Beaverhead Museum hosted a teacher/student Archaeology Day for the region.
