Archaeological Groups of Southwest Texas Join Together for Workshop
October 30, 2012
AIA-Southwest Texas Archaeological Society (SWTAS) joined the National Park Service, UTSA's Center for Archaeological Research (CAR), and the Texas Archaeological Society (TAS) in celebrating National Archaeology Day at historical Mission Concepcion, San Antonio Missions. While the other organizations provided experts to identify and explain artifacts the public brought, the SWTAS provided information about the AIA and its Site Preservation Program. Society volunteers explained the program, its grants, the AIA policies on collecting, looting, and museums, and the AIA troop lecture program. The public was also given AIA membership brochures, site preservation flyers, "Archaeology" magazines, and cultural heritage playing cards. Over 1,000 visitors came were present at the event!
More Collaborating Organizations have joined us for International Archaeology Day 2014!
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.
