Project Archaeology: Smithsonian Sponsors Chesapeake Office

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.

The program develops educational materials for teachers, scout leaders, and museum educators. It 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.

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 leaflets, bibliographies, and teaching activities. A listing of these free online materials is offered below.
