Public Outreach and the QAR Lab: Engaging Present and Future Generations in Cultural Heritage

Author(s): Courtney E Page

Year: 2018

Summary

The North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources encourages its facilities to engage the public of North Carolina in history and cultural heritage through education and outreach programs. The Queen Anne’s Revenge Conservation Lab is tasked with investigating, documenting, and preserving the remains of Blackbeard’s flagship, and as a member of the Department strives to provide opportunities for active learning within the local community and beyond. With limited resources and no budget for education, the QAR Lab has developed a program of lab tours, show-and-tell activities, public presentations, and interactive events to not only teach future generations about archaeology and conservation, but to involve the citizens of North Carolina in their cultural heritage.
