Please join us in celebrating National Archaeology Day by visiting with students from a variety of Minnesota institutions as they present posters about their experiences with archaeological fieldwork. This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in archaeology and the preservation of cultural heritage to learn more about the global work of the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) and the thrill of archaeological discovery. We are reaching out to our community by presenting the vibrant student involvement with archaeological fieldwork and projects nationally and internationally and hope to inspire students and the general public and encourage life-long interest in preservation of archaeological heritage.
This poster session has been made possible by an AIA Outreach Grant intended to bring together the public and students and professionals from different institutions encourage membership in the AIA and its Minnesota Society. Thanks to the Outreach Grant, we are able to serve refreshments at this event and offer $5 rebates to anyone who joins the AIA during the event.
