A Day in Archaeology

Today is the Day in Archaeology! In celebration, we have submitted a post to the Council for British Archaeology blog to give you an idea of the outreach routine on our site. As mentioned before, this is probably the most mysterious job on a field school, and we wanted to pull back the curtain for all of our friends and supporters. Click here to read it!

Today is also the day we celebrate youth engagement in archaeology! We’ve hosted three student blogs, here, here, and here. One thing we’d like to draw your attention to are the recurring themes in our admittedly-small sample: a recognition of one’s own opportunity, a push for diversity and accessibility in the field, and a hopefulness that archaeology can one day fulfill these aspirations. Three incredible young women shared with us their perspective on archaeology today as well as a dream for the next generation of archaeologists. It’s so inspiring to see young people with such passion for archaeology that they strive to make real positive change in the field. The future is in good hands.
