Be sure to include "#IADArtifact of the Day", #IAD2021, and your Twitter handle (i.e. @archaeology_AIA) as they all count towards the character limit. Example: The @VeteransCurationProgram processed this projectile point from the @PortlandCorps Dalles Lock and Dam. It looks like it was made from a regular rock but was actually made from petrified wood–a common material for stone tools east of the Cascades in WA. #IAD2021
