State Archeology Weeks and Months are designed to generate understanding and support for archeology. The associated events generally involve educational experiences for the public and increasingly for schools that promote the preservation of archaeological resources and illustrate the scientific process of the discipline. This annual event represents a major investment of archaeology's resources for targeting the public. Professionals, avocationalists, and volunteers organize these celebrations, expending considerable effort and planning. Local sponsorships are often critical to the success of such undertakings. These web pages bring together a variety of State Archaeology Week and Month activities to serve as examples for others to learn from.
