National Archaeology Educator’s Conference 2016

Back to Basics: Education 101 for Archaeologists & Archaeology 101 for Educators

Historic Colonial Williamsburg, VA

October 10 – 14, 2016

We invite anyone interested in archaeology education to attend! The conference provides professional development through sessions, workshops, and field trips; presents opportunities for networking and mentorships; and connects conference attendees with high-quality educational materials.

The Academy will focus on the curriculum Project Archaeology: Investigating Shelter, an inquiry-based social studies and science curriculum, which guides students through a complete archaeological investigation of shelter.

Discover the past ~ Shape the future

Project Archaeology uses archaeological inquiry to foster understanding of past and present cultures; improve social studies and science education; and enhance citizenship education to help preserve our archaeological legacy.

“Discovery is nothing more than observing what is already there.”
