Ohio Archaeological Council’s Spring Meeting to Focus on Public Archaeology Programs and Archaeology Field Schools
The Ohio Archaeological Council will hold it’s spring meeting on Saturday March 23rd from 9:30am-4:30pm at the Ohio History Center. The event will feature presentations about public archaeology programming and archaeological field schools in Ohio. The meeting is free and open to the public!
The meeting will be a great opportunity for students, faculty, OAC members, and the public to hear about the more than 20 ongoing and recent public archaeology programs and archaeology field schools in Ohio. Attendees will get to network with program organizers, and explore opportunities to participate in these activities. A panel discussion among presenters will address best practices in coordinating and conducting such activities. A brief OAC business meeting will occur following lunch.
You will also learn about the benefits of OAC membership, including: a field school scholarship program for students, a student membership level, opportunities to publish and share research on our website (Current Research and Journal of Ohio Archaeology), and a research grant program. The OAC also helps the State Historic Preservation Office organizing public archaeology events and celebrating Ohio Archaeology Month (October).
Coffee and snacks are provided; lunch is on your own.
