Dear Vermont Educators,
Could you please forward the announcement below to as many teachers and
county school district administrators as possible? Thank you very much for

Vermont Archaeology Week Steaming Ahead!
The Vermont Archaeological Society, Inc. and the Vermont Division
for Historic Preservation are launching Vermont Archaeology Week,
September 20-26, 1998! This year's theme, Journey Into the Past,
celebrates the 5th annual Vermont Archaeology Week, 30th anniversary of
the Vermont Archaeological Society, Inc., and the 150th year of railroads
in Vermont. Vermont's leading heritage outreach program publicizes over
70 fascinating events and exhibits, most free and open to the public. Many
of our events are specifically aimed at students and teachers of all ages!
Make your own atlatl (a prehistoric spear-thrower used to hunt caribou),
learn what Native Americans ate for dinner in the past, discover a
historic site right in your own town, take part in a Teacher's Workshop to
integrate regional archaeology, prehistory, and history into your
classroom, and dig into many other aspects of Vermont's archaeology.
Check out our Calendars of Events and webpage for a full listing of
activities promoting stewardship of Vermont's fragile archaeological and
historic sites and structures.
Grassroots outreach through Vermont Archaeology Week enables over 10,000
folks to annually learn more about Vermont's significant,
non-renewable archaeological sites and help protect them. The Green
Mountain State's rich and ancient heritage provides a tangible link to the
past and strong sense of Vermont's identity. Begin your Journey Into the
Past with us tomorrow!
