Smith, KC, Ed.; McManamon, Francis P., Ed.
The papers collected in this document are derived from a symposium held during the 1990 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archeology. The symposium, part of an increasing effort to make archeology more accessible to the general public, was dedicated solely to archaeology and education, and the papers described programs designed to involve young persons in archeology through schools, museums, and other means. Following introductory remarks by Marley R. Brown, III, the papers include: "Teacher Training Programs in Anthropology: The Multiplier Effect in the Classroom" (Ruth O. Selig); "The Pensacola Model of Public Archeology" (Judith A. Bense); "By Land or by Sea: Archeology Programs for Youths at the Museum of Florida History" (KC Smith); "Project Origins: Archeology for People with Handicaps" (Micheal Faught; James S. Gittings); "Archeology Is More Than a Dig: Educating Children about the Past Saves Sites for the Future" (Carol Ellick); and "A 'Compleat' Curriculum: Historical Archeology on the Undergraduate Level" (Robert L. Schuyler). (DB)
