Students in Archaeology with the AIA-Minnesota Society
November 13, 2012
The AIA-Minnesota Society celebrated National Archaeology Day with “Students in Archaeology: Poster Presentation of Recent Fieldwork,” a poster session featuring the archaeological work of eleven undergraduate and graduate students from five Minnesota colleges (Carleton, Gustavus Adolphus) and universities (Minnesota, St. Thomas, Concordia). The sites represented are in Bulgaria, Croatia, Israel, Italy, and Jordan. By presenting their work, students introduced their classmates, families and friends to the AIA and to its global work. The poster session brought together students and professionals from different institutions, as well as AIA-MN members, some parents and the public at large. Thanks to the Outreach Grant, the society was able to reimburse students for the costs of poster printing and serve refreshments at this event, which encouraged mingling and conversation.
Volunteers are needed to monitor the translations of the International Archaeology Day webpage.
After two years of great success, National Archaeology Day will change to International Archaeology Day for 2013.
The Friends of the Office of State Archaeology in Connecticut acted as a participating partner in National Archaeology Day by sponsoring an Archaeology Fair.
