Archaeology, Citizen Science, and Community Engagement

Frontier Culture Museum

Staunton, VA 24401 United States

Dr. Carole Nash of James Madison University will present a free lecture to the public.

Public Archaeology refers to those aspects of the broad field of archaeology that relate to the public interest. Public archaeologists investigate the outcomes of the various innovative ways we can engage the public in archaeological research, both within archaeology and in terms of public awareness.

There are different areas of specialization within public archaeological practice, such as heritage education, cultural resource management (CRM), interpretation, museum studies, descendant collaboration, ethics, and cultural tourism, among others. There are also different research objectives including educational archaeology, archaeology activism, community archaeology, civically-engaged archaeology, and the archaeology of social justice.
