From Our House to Yours
The 14th season of Archaeology Café celebrates and shares Archaeology Southwest’s current Preservation Archaeology projects with you. Our staff members will bring you in on what we’re doing right now to learn more about the past and help protect special places.
Load up a plate, grab a drink, and tune in!
What’s the same about this season of Archaeology Café?
We meet just before 6:00 p.m. MST (what time is that compared to where I live?) on the first Tuesday of each month from October through May, with the exception of November. Because of Election Day, we’ll meet the second Tuesday that month, November 10.
Can’t join us live? About a week after each café, we’ll post videos of each presentation to the video archive on our website and to our YouTube channel. We’ll share links on our Facebook and Twitter and in our Southwest Archaeology Today and This Month at Archaeology Southwest email newsletters.
All of our meetings will be via Zoom Webinar. (To learn how to install Zoom, click here.) Preregistration is required before each event, but is free.
Presenters will speak for 30 minutes, and then we’ll turn to questions for another 30 minutes. During the presentation, you can use the question-and-answer tool within Zoom Webinar to ask questions as they come to mind. We will be monitoring the question-and-answer feed during the program, and we’ll tag questions for the presenter to address in the Q & A portion.
We’ve all worked together to compile resources and references you can review and pursue before and after each presentation. Those are shared on each individual café page linked below. And after each café, we’ll add answers to questions we were unable to address during the live program to those pages, as well.
What makes this season’s topics “Preservation Archaeology”?
In each of the eight cafés, we’ll explore and reflect on the broad range of projects and activities encompassed by Preservation Archaeology. As we’ll see through the course of this season of Archaeology Café, Preservation Archaeology is holistic, conservation-based, and collaborative. It is an approach to learning about places and heritage through dynamic new tools and low- or no-impact methods in order to achieve high-impact insights and protections.
