The increase in conservation project and archaeological excavation blogs has been a wonderful tool for promoting and informing the public and other professionals about our field. Do you want to promote your involvement in an archaeological project, but don’t want to set up a blog?
A Day of Archaeology on July 26, 2011 is an excellent method for public outreach and promotes preservation within archaeology. The goal of the project is to promote the various aspects of archaeology (including conservation) and to chronicle one day of activities.
For more information, see the website at http://www.dayofarchaeology.com/about-the-project/ Please consider submitting a short blog so we can enhance an understanding of what conservators do and how archaeological conservation contributes to a site.
