As Assistant State Archaeologist for the western region, Dr. Dylan Clark will discuss what the North Carolina Office of State Archaeology does and how it contributes to identifying, studying, protecting, and sharing information about 12,000+ years of NC history. In this presentation he will explore the role of the OSA in all things NC archaeology–from applying federal and state laws that protect archaeological resources, to maintaining the register of known archaeological sites and working with citizens and institutions to document and preserve the state’s most significant cultural resources. Dr. Clark will also desribe the services that OSA provides the public and how you can connect with archaeologists in your area to learn more about the ancient places, material culture, and history of your community. As always, there will be plenty of time for questions, like “who should I call if I find ________in my backyard or attic?,” or any other queries you may have!
