National Archaeology with the AIA-Gainesville Society

2011-12 AIA-Gainesville Society President Mary Ann Eaverly (Prof. of Classics, UF) at the display table with the Society's new banner.

For National Archaeology Day members of the AIA-Gainesville Society staffed a display table outside of a popular local public library branch, the Millhopper Library.  The table will be attended by members with AIA handouts, laptop showing slides of archaeology sites, flyers for upcoming lectures, Archaeology Magazine issues, and artifact reproductions from Egypt, North Coast Peru, and Mississippian culture. At 2:00 pm, University of Florida Classics Department Professor Mary Ann Eaverly gave a slide lecture, “The Last Days of Pompeii,” in the library lecture room.  Thirty people attended the lecture including several children.  Cookies, juice, and iced tea were served before and after the lecture.
