The Day of Archaeology 2012 aims to give a window into the daily lives of archaeologists though the Day of Archaeology group blogging project website.
Following on from the success of 2011, we are happy to announce that this year’s Day of Archaeology is scheduled for June 29, 2012!
Last year’s event brought out 400+ professional, student and voluntary archaeologists from around the globe, and almost 450 separate posts including lots of photos,
video, audio and more. You can read more about the Day of Archaeology at About the Projecta href="http://www.dayofarchaeology.com/about-the-project/" target="_blank">http://www.dayofarchaeology.com/about-the-project/>, but the general hope of the Day is to raise public awareness of
the truly diverse nature of archaeology, and that this will also in turn emphasize the vital role that archaeology plays in preserving our past for everyone’s future.
We are looking for people working, studying or volunteering in the archaeological world to participate. The resulting entries will be posted to the project website and
will demonstrate the wide variety of work our profession undertakes day-to-day across the globe, and help to raise public awareness of the relevance and importance
of archaeology to the modern world.
We want anyone with a personal, professional or voluntary interest in archaeology to get involved. If you, your colleagues or volunteers working with your project would
like to document their archaeological day on the 29th June (or a day near to it) through any medium you feel comfortable with, be it a blog entry, or by filming, recording
or photographing your day, we would love your contribution!
If you can’t make Friday, you can still contribute up to a week before or after the Day of Archaeology itself. If you would like to take part but don’t feel confident
writing a blog or uploading photos/film, please get in touch with us and we can help. You can sign up, or find out more, by emailing the group at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please pass this on to anyone you think might be interested in taking part, and we look forward to hearing from you!
