AIA Holton Lecture:
Archaeology from Space
by Dr. Sarah Parcak
University of Alabama
Join us for a special virtual event featuring this year's Felicia A. Holton Book Award winner, Dr. Sarah Parcak, discussing her book Archaeology from Space: How the Future Shapes our Past.
Writing about the Past: How to Find Your Voice and Become a Better Storyteller
It has become essential for archaeologists to engage with the broader public. More archaeologists and students of archaeology should write books and articles for the general public, but think they lack the necessary skillsets to do so, which is untrue. This talk will share the writer's personal insights and story about how Archaeology from Space was conceived, written, and edited, and will share perspectives on how to interpret the past for the general public. It is hoped that the lecture will inspire more current and future archaeologists to take more risks with their public archaeological writings.
The lecture is free and open to the public. Zoom registration is required; please register by clicking the button below.
This month's Book discussion looks at the archaeological evidence from the great fire of 64 CE. We are all told that Nero fiddled as Rome burned.... but what really happened? Join us as we look at what literature and the archaeology can tell us...myth or reality?
Anyone in our society (or anyone interested in our society) is welcome to join. You just need to register for our Zoom discussion on September 30th.
