Please join us for an opportunity to learn about opportunities for gaining field experience in Ohio archaeology! The spring 2019 biannual meeting of the Ohio Archaeological Council (Saturday, March 23 at the Ohio History Center in Columbus, 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.) 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.
