Archaeology Awareness Month
Governor Mead signs the 2012 Wyoming
Archaeology Awareness Month proclamation.
Celebrated annually in September, Wyoming Archaeology Awareness Month (WAAM) consists of a series of statewide activities and programs devoted to discussing archaeological issues and to educating the public about the importance of preserving and protecting Wyoming’s archaeological heritage. September 2013 will mark the 21th anniversary of archaeology awareness promotion in Wyoming.
Read the Proclamation
The centerpiece of WAAM is the poster we produce every year. It is distributed statewide, nationally, and internationally to more than 5,000 people and organizations to announce Wyoming Archaeology Awareness Month. Wyoming posters have been honored with numerous awards in the State Archaeology Week Poster Contest sponsored by the Society for American Archaeology’s Public Education Committee and Council of Affiliated Societies.
