Accessible Archaeology for Youth

Author(s): Alexandra Jones

Year: 2021


This is an abstract from the session entitled "Remote Archaeology: Taking Archaeology Online in the Wake of COVID-19" , at the 2021 annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archaeology.

COVID-19 has impacted the whole world in ways we could have never imagined. This global pandemic presents historic challenges for many of us in the field of archaeology included. For archaeologists, many of our projects have stopped, researchers have been pulled from their sites, and museums have closed to slow the spread of the virus. While necessary, these measures have severely impacted our ability to reach the communities we serve. In an effort to continue serving our youth populations during these uncertain times, AITC has switched to a total virtual platform. This paper will discuss the methodology utilized to create the virtual programs and steps for moving forward to make digital learning accessible to all.
