Yesterday, October 22nd, was considered National Archaeology Day. It was largely an affair run by the Archaeology Institute of America, the membership of which isn’t very prevalent amongst my archaeological cohort. At least, not that I’m aware of. There are other supporting groups listed on the AIA website that I am, if not a member, than at least more familiar with. The odd thing is that I never heard about National Archaeology Day through the support group that I’m a member of (SAA), nor could I find any mention (granted after the fact) of the Day on the websites for the SHA and AAA. The only reason I even heard about it was from some low-level rumblings of the event beforehand, but not during nor after.
Did anybody participate in a non-AIA function? Did anybody participate at all? If so, please repost and respond. I’d like to hear what you did.
