A DAY OF ARCHAEOLOGY in Philadelphia– July, 2014

Back to Philly Day of Archaeology
The Philadelphia ‘Day of Archaeology’ is the local version of an international blogging project that is designed to provide a window into the lives of archaeologists and to those whose work engages with archaeology. The Philadelphia Archaeological Forum gathers and collates local, Philadelphia-area submissions and posts them both here at the webpages of the Philadelphia Archaeological Forum and at the international project’s blog posting site.
The Philadelphia ‘Day of Archaeology’ project welcomes archaeologists and anyone else working with or even visiting archaeology resources locally in the Philadelphia area– be they tour guides, media specialists, volunteers, students, local historians, journalists, teachers, preservation specialists, cultural resource managers, park rangers, museum folks, artists, etc., etc.
Our objective is to share information about what one does with archaeology locally on a given day. This can be anything from writing a report to reading a report, presenting a tour with sites to excavating on a site, washing artifacts for reconstructing objects to photographing artifacts for 3D computational modeling of artifacts, preparing/teaching a lecture or lesson plan to grading papers that use archaeology evidence, writing for the public about archaeology or evaluating archaeology for a state or federal agency, supervising volunteers or being an archaeology volunteer, even just checking the PAF Facebook page or these web pages count (if that is what was done with archaeology on that day)!
