Nebraska Archaeology Month

Celebrate Nebraska Archaeology Month!

Print

Nebraska Archaeology Month, held in September, is a month-long exploration of Nebraska’s archaeological past. It engages professional archaeologists and the citizens of Nebraska in activities showing the archaeological richness of our State in order to encourage a new generation of archaeologists and give citizens a greater appreciation of archaeological site stewardship. Exhibits, lectures, demonstrations, tours, open houses, workshops and other activities are scheduled throughout the state at museums, historic sites, state parks, libraries and colleges. Visit the Archaeology Month Events page to find events happening in your area!

Nebraska Archaeology Month is coordinated by the Nebraska Association of Professional Archeologists, and supported by the Nebraska State Historical Society, the National Park Service – Midwest Archeological Center, the University of Nebraska, the US Forest Service, the Bureau of Reclamation, and the Nebraska Archaeological Society. Additional support comes from a number of federal, state, and local entities with an interest in the state of Nebraska and its history, including natural resource preserves, museums, historical societies, and libraries.

Starting with our first Archaeology Month in 2014, we have chosen the general theme of Celebrate! We hope that celebrating the archaeology of Nebraska will help to raise awareness about how great our state is and encourage Nebraskans to learn more about what it takes to keep these archaeological sites around for future generations.
