In Spring 2018, students enrolled in ANTH 4250 Cultural Resource Management produced projects aimed at engaging the public regarding issues related to archaeology and heritage preservation. Cultural resource managers interact with a wide range of stakeholders, including people who have very little knowledge about archaeology. The purpose of this project was to familiarize students with writing for a non-specialist audience. The projects students developed ranged from traditional print media (posters, brochures, magazines) to blogs and social media (Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram) to other kinds of multi-media formats (models, lectures).

Kay McKenna made a series of posters geared towards public archaeology.
