Archeology in Action

Archeology in Action, Tuesdays, March 6, 13, and 20, 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The class will meet on the first night in the ANC Statehouse Hall room S141 and thereafter at the Archeological Research Station. The class is free.

Ever wondered what archeology is really like?  You may think archeologists spend all their time digging, but much archeological research is done in the laboratory.  The Blytheville Archeological Research Station, part of the Arkansas Archeological Survey, will host this look at the real archeology.

At the first meeting, March 6, students will explore why one does archeology, how archeology works, and what one learns from archeological research.  On March 13, students will tour the Arkansas Archeological Survey’s lab before diving into a close-up look at artifacts recovered from recent excavations.   On March 20, students will continue their look at 700-year-old stone, bone, and pottery artifacts.

Students will get the opportunity to see archeology in action and be an integral part of the archeological research in the NE Arkansas region.  Plus, after the experience from this class, students might want to go out with the Survey archeologists on an excavation project or continue to gain knowledge about a particular artifact type through further work in the lab.  The possibilities are endless and it can all start with “Archeology in Action”!  All ages are welcome, but we do require that anyone under the age of 16 be accompanied by an adult.

To register, call Lena Guidry, Department of Continuing and Community Education of Arkansas Northeastern College at (870) 762-3167 or
