Before Archaeology for the Public was created, the SAA Public Education Committee sponsored, first, a print newsletter called Archaeology & Public Education, and later, an electronic version of the newsletter. Information in the newsletter covered news, events, web sites, and other timely items, as well as lesson plans and educational information for those using archaeology in teaching.
