By Katherine Hodge, Project Archaeology Interim Program Lead

Hello everyone, and Happy New Year! There are a few changes happening for Project Archaeology in 2022. I have been offered a new job and accepted. This unfortunately means that I will be stepping down from my position at Project Archaeology and moving out of Bozeman. My last day is on January 11th, and once I leave the BLM will take over the day to day functioning of Project Archaeology.

My departure will also mean that all social media posts will stop for the foreseeable future. The blogs will remain on the website for anyone to read, use, and enjoy, but no new blogs will be published.

The sales on the website will continue, both with physical and electronic orders. MSU will be taking over the orders, so please expect a slight delay of one or two weeks from the time your order is placed to when it is sent out.

On a personal note, I want to express a deep and heartfelt thank you to you all. Since I started working for Project Archaeology, I have continually seen network members do amazing things, witnessed people navigating teaching in the pandemic in brilliant ways, and have had the privilege to personally teach new network members to continue the Project Archaeology mission. Additionally, building up a social media following and seeing how many people read the blogs on a weekly basis  inspired further writing and posting. It has been an honor to work for Project Archaeology both as the Public Education Coordinator and as the Interim Director, and I will miss the opportunity to work with y’all in the future.

If you have any questions or need anything, please email Maya Fuller ( with the Bureau of Land Management,  who will be taking over the day-to-day operations or use the “Contact Us” page on the website.

Again, thank you all and Happy New Year!
