On Friday, October 20, the Human Relations Area Files at Yale University will host an event in celebration of Archaeology Day. Each October, the Archaeological Institute of America and organizations around the world present archaeological programs and activities. This will be HRAF’s second annual Archaeology Day event co-sponsored by the UConn Stamford Anthropology Society.
Students from the University of Connecticut have been invited to New Haven for a day exploring archaeology and cross-cultural research. We will begin our day with coffee in downtown New Haven followed by a tour of the historic Yale University campus led by Matthew Longcore, Director of Membership and Outreach at HRAF and Anthropology adjunct faculty member at UConn Stamford.
Following the tour, the group will visit the HRAF offices at 755 Prospect Street for lunch featuring famous New Haven pizza. After lunch, there will be a presentation on cross-cultural research from HRAF President Carol Ember followed by a workshop that introduces archaeology through illustration from HRAF Office Assistant Haley Brown. The day will conclude with a visit to the Yale University Art Gallery.
Many thanks to UConn students for joining us in celebration of Archaeology Day 2023. We will post a reflection with photos after the event.
