ANTH 4250 Cultural Resource Management Projects

Students enrolled in ANTH 4250 Cultural Resource Management produce 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.

Chris Saunders made a series of posters about cultural heritage in Gordon County.

Flynn Vogt made an Instagram arch.eology (about archaeology relevant to UGA)
