The Smithsonian’s Department of Anthropology is the Chesapeake Regional Office of Project Archaeology, a nationally recognized archaeology education program with regional offices in 20 states. Using an innovative hands-on approach to history, Project Archaeology teaches scientific inquiry, citizenship, personal ethics and cultural understanding. The program develops educational materials for teachers, scout leaders, and museum educators; conducts workshops for incorporating archaeology in the classroom; and provides ongoing regional mentoring between professional archaeologists and educators. Many aspects of the curriculum materials are interdisciplinary. Research Collaborator Maureen Malloy is the part-time volunteer coordinator of the Chesapeake regional office.
Anthropology Outreach Materials
As the result of many years of developing public outreach materials in addition to the publication of the award-winning publication AnthroNotes, the Department of Anthropology provides a variety of outreach materials online. These materials include information leaflets, bibliographies, and teaching activities. A listing of these free online materials is offered below. Currently the AnthroNotes editors are preparing a searchable digital archive of the thirty-three years of AnthroNotes articles and teaching activities. When this resource becomes available, we will distribute information about it to the AnthroNotes mailing list. Please sign up below to become a member of the AnthroNotes e-mail distribution.
This index represents 33 years of print publication (1979 – 2012) of AnthroNotes. Back issues from Fall 1996 to the present are available online. A digital project is currently underway that will enable teachers and the public to search AnthroNotes articles by TITLE, AUTHOR, OR GENERAL INTEREST TOPIC such as Human Origins; Africa; Evolution; Asia; Race; Growing Up in Other Cultures; Archaeology; and Language.
