Some of you gentle readers may be asking: “What’s historical archaeology?” Simply put, this field is “the study of the material remains of past societies that also left behind some other form of historical evidence.” With a membership base that ranges from newcomers to seasoned professionals, The Society for Historical Archaeology is a group whose work will be of general interest to those with a yearning to learn more about history and archaeology. After delving into their “About” section, visitors should mosey on over to their “Projects & Research” area. Here a number of organizations and research teams have submitted websites that document their own recent excavations, such as those around Harpers Ferry and West Point. Finally, the site’s “Futures” section contains helpful information on careers in archaeology and a guide to programs in historical and underwater archaeology.
