Project Archaeology presents: Best Practices in Archaeology Education.
Project Archaeology holds an annual conference each fall for our Coordinators and Master Teachers. This year, in honor of our 25th anniversary, we are starting the first National Archaeology Educator’s Conference. Now the conference will be expanded to include all archaeology educators including archaeologists, museum educators, teachers, students, and anyone else interested in archaeology education!
