Join us today at the 8th Annual Day of Archaeology @dumbartonhouse in Georgetown! The event is free, open to the public, and kid friendly. We also have tents and tarps, so don’t let the rain deter you! Come by to see real artifacts from Halcyon House and advertisements that match. We also have an activity for kids where they can decorate their own model lamp globes. @aitc_dc #dayofarchaeology2018 #dayofarch #dayofarchaeology #archaeofest2018 #dcarchaeology #halcyonhouse #archaeology #queerhistory #lgbthistory
Sherdnerding all summer long... 🏺☀️🇬🇷 When I'm not running, this is how I've spent the majority of my summer. Check out what the Palace and Landscape at Palaikastro (PALAP) Project has been up to this summer, and celebrate the Day of Archaeology with us!

Tiberius is serving as Official Moderation Assistant tonight for the big online #archaeology outreach event, #dayofarch !
I forgot to add the photo-board to mimic last year's end of project photo (I am wearing the same socks though), but here we are! It has been an amazing month @colonyofavalonfoundation this year, and I am so grateful to everyone who volunteered their time this summer to come help out with the excavation and took an interest in my research! The excavation this year uncovered a lot of exciting aspects of the early 17th-century settlement at Ferryland, and I know this will not be my last time walking across those historic cobbled streets 🤓😙 Now to take some much deserved rest before diving into the finishing bits of my thesis!! There will be a #dayofarch post soon, and a blog post at Spade & the Grave laster this weekend about the results of my dig, stay tuned! _____________________________________ #ferryland #mortuaryarch #colonyofavalon #gradschool #research #amazing #excavation #archaeology #archaeologist #fieldwork #newfoundland #survey #historic #history #historicalarchaeology #publicarch #earthwork #landscapearch #mapping #thesis #gradschool #tattoos #botanicaltattoo #blog #research

Another exciting part of Archaeology in a museum setting is sharing our collections through exhibitions and lectures! #dayofarch #dayofarchaeology #archaeologists #museums #curators #exhibition #lecture
Following federal law is part of being an archaeologist too. This includes the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), which requires the repatriation of ancestral remains and cultural objects to federally recognized tribes. Katie's doing contextual research in our document archives in order to identify associated funerary objects. - #dayofarch #archaeology #research #nagpra #repatriation #archaeologists #dayofarchaeology
Since we're an institution at the beautiful @iubloomington , one of the greatest parts of being an archaeologist is teaching! #dayofarch #research #teaching #archaeology #archaeologists #students #internships #classes #dayofarchaeology
An authentic replica of a Viking merchant ship called Ottar. Ottar is a reconstruction of Skuldelev 1, which is believed to be the kind of vessel used to embark on trade voyages across the Atlantic in the 11th century. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Skuldelev 1 was a sturdy, ocean-going trading vessel, possibly owned by a chieftain or a group of merchants who used it to sail on trading expeditions. It was 16 metres long, 4.8 metres wide, and would have had a crew of six to eight men. Its pine, oak and lime construction supported a cargo capacity of 24 tons. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Typical of all Viking ships, Skuldelev 1 had one mast with either a wool or linen sail. It was originally built around the year 1030 in Sognefjord in Norway, with repairs along the way in Denmark. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For more: cbc.ca/natureofthings ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #TheNatureOfThings #TNoT #CBCTNoT #DavidSuzuki #DayOfArch #DayOfArcheology #Vikings #Viking #VikingShip #Norway #Norse #Canada

Part of our collections include legacy data: negatives, photos, card catalogs, and even film reels! We've started digitizing these for preservation and research purposes. #dayofarch #dayofarchaeology #archaeology #museums #collections #images #archives #preservation #digitizing #digitalarchaeology
Weather aside, we've had an awesome week. Marvellous all round progress and more possible evidence of a Roman hypocaust system. Thanks to all of the week 5 team! #dayofarch #archaeology #york
Storage is the next step for our artifacts. Where do you keep your collections?? #dayofarch #dayofarchaeology #collections #museums #archaeology
Green stone frog from Costa Rica. 🐸 I've always enjoyed the gold, green stone and jade imagery of frogs. Sometimes it's not always as clear in the ceramic iconography.
A little less glamorous, but OH SO IMPORTANT is processing and organizing the collections. #dayofarch #dayofarchaeology #archaeologists #archaeology #museums #collections
By studying these objects we hope to connect the people of the present with the people of the past. #dayofarch #dayofarchaeology #museums #archaeologists #artifacts #collections #culture #heritage #history #prehistory

It's official 'day of archaeology' today apparently, here's a photo of me excavating the killing zone at Hougoumont Farm on the Waterloo battlefield. Archaeology is hard. It consists of long days, backbreaking work and I have to wear a hard hat quite often which ruins my hair (lol).... but it is also hugely rewarding and one of those rare jobs with which you can really make a difference. Those moments when you uncover an artefact, and you're the first person to see and feel it for thousands of years are completely priceless. In the killing zone for example, we were finding French musket balls. The last people to see those were soldiers desperately fighting for their lives during the Battle of Waterloo. It's crazy really. The closest thing to actual time travel we have. If you can, volunteer on a dig near you this summer! #dayofarch

Today is #DAYOFARCH showcasing what archaeologists all over the world really do. Some of us are not in the field, but stuck in front of 💻.

That time I got chased around by a journalist and had to explain to them that no I can't tell you the name or the place of origin of this individual and she sighed in disappointment and asked me to just point at some bones for a while 🙄😝 Yeah. It was super awkward. On a more positive note, in this news segment our #church makes its coming out as the oldest and largest #basilica in the #Caucasus ! C14 dates came back and the first construction was ca. 386 AD. This is shortly after the official christianization if the Iberia (ancient eastern Georgian kingdom). Very exciting stuff and I hope to contribute to growing knowledge about it as I finish up with the skeletal assemblage this week. 😁 • #archeology #archeological #archeoigers #archeologists #bioarchaeology #history #historical #ancient #science #nerd #work #academia #student #anthropology #ilovemyjob #scientist #osteology #anatomy #skeletal #fieldwork #excavation #travel #research #georgia #christian #dayofarch #medieval
#dayofarch how important is pit #excavation for an #archaeologist ?
We worked hard cleaning the trenches for photos today, and I spent all afternoon drawing these profiles with the help of @natsufolk (who did all the measuring)! I'm very happy with how this turned out, and I can't wait to write about my time at Ferryland for the #dayofarch tomorrow! One more day at site to go! _______________________________ #ferryland #mortuaryarch #colonyofavalon #gradschool #research #amazing #excavation #archaeology #archaeologist #fieldwork #newfoundland #survey #historic #history #historicalarchaeology #publicarch #earthwork #landscapearch #mapping #stratigraphy #drawing #poole #sediment #pretty
#uac2k17 participants @nails.by.paul and @londoncontent devoted their entire Saturday to working #dayofarch at @dumbartonhouse ! They created a wildly popular stratigraphy activity where kids excavated through different layers of "soils" (crushed chocolate graham cracker organic soil horizon and then vanilla wafer subsoil), to recover some edible "artifacts" (gummies, etc.)! Thanks to @aitc_dc for organizing such an amazing event and thank you to @op_indc and @nationalparkservice for letting @uac_dc share table space! #dayofarchaeology #archaeofest17 #deliciousdirtcups

#tbt to this photo of American Archaeologist and photographer Mary Alison Frantz, at the Agora in 1947. Frantz was the Agora's official photographer from 1939 to 1964 and was famous for her photos of Greek sculpture. In 1939, as WWII was breaking out, Frantz had to photograph over six hundred tablets of Linear B script in two days before they were stored. These photographs led to the eventual decipherment of Linear B. You can look through her whole collection in our archives: http://ow.ly/uUs2302BGNq

First (real) free day in a fortnight: cleaning house, doing laundry and trying to finish my (belated) #dayofarch post. Instead, I get distracted by my few (blue) Pelican classics on archaeology and anthropology, thinking @addymanbooks will find them interesting (since it's a Penguin books collection that I bought in different travels -there's always room for more books-). Add a blue cat bookmarker since it's #caturday and we,re done... except the housekeeping and blog article of course 🙃 . . Primer día libre (real) de la quincena: de limpieza en casa, además de escribir (tarde) para el Día de Arqueología, que fue ayer. Pero me distraigo sacando fotos a mis clásicos de arqueología y antropología de la colección Pelican (tesoros traídos de distintos viajes, bastante difíciles de conseguir por estos pagos, en estas ediciones). Le agregamos un señalador de gato azul y todo listo... excepto por la casa, el lavado y el artículo para el blog 😂 . #buenosaires #life #saturdayplans #shortspanattention ? #procrastinating #museumworker #archaeologist #classics #archaeology #anthropology #bookstagram #bookporn #booklovers #bookworms #pelicanbooks #margaretmead #victorturner #sirleonardwooley #glyndaniel #igcolor #igersbsas
Today is also #dayofarchaeology . I spent my #dayofarch doing what I do most days: moving #artifacts from one place to another. Today they went from trays to plastic bags. I ❤️ my job & I'm not even lying about that. #crmarch #crmlab
Our first ever teacher expedition came to a close today on #dayofarch , and it was amazing. Huge thanks to our @montpelier_arch staff for being incredible every day, for @aitc_dc for this incredible partnership, and for the amazing educators who spent the week with us: teachers are the most important people in our society, and I'm so grateful they took time out of their well deserved summer breaks to spend a week working in the dirt with us @jmmontpelier ! #digmontpelier #teachers #archaeology #pubarch

Spent my #dayofarch at a super cool historic site!
Pot-menders at work in the Old #Excavation House, 25 Asteroskopeiou Street, in March 1937 during excavations in the Athenian Agora. According to the Athenian Agora fieldnotes from 1937, archaeologist discovered remnants of a pottery studio while excavating “filling behind retaining wall of Stoa of #Zeus . The remains of unfired clay adhering to the interior of various pieces make it probable that the material in this filling is a mass of debris from the floor of a #pottery works destroyed by subsequent building.” Ancient Greek pottery pigments from this excavation are part of the @harvardartmuseums #pigment collection.
