Archaeology Awareness Month

WAAM Posters

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. This year we celebrate 100 years of Paleoindian archaeology in Wyoming (click to learn more). 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. 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.
