Events and Talks

Have an interest in archaeology or want to know how to explore a career related to archaeology? Let ARI archaeologists walk you through the local history and how we explore that history. Our talks and events will give you an inside look at what archaeologists do, how we represent Native Americans as people with a past, and how to practice stewardship of our historical sites and natural resources.

Intro to Archaeology Talk 

Archaeology is the study of humans through the “stuff” that they left behind and can answer questions about trade, technology, food, habits, or past environments. In this talk, our archaeologists will discuss archaeology as a science, common misconceptions, and the research that ARI conducts at the Guard Site in Dearborn County, Indiana.

Length: 
30min-1 hour 

Activity Level: 
Minimal- seminar style with presentation and questions following or throughout 

Archaeology Career Talk 

This talk, given by archaeologists, gives a broad overview of archaeology as a discipline and a deep dive into archaeology as a career.

Need a speaker? 

We offer the possibility for one of our archaeologists to travel to themed events, such as lecture series, classrooms, libraries, or organizational meetings to give seminar-style lectures to your group or the public.  

We have previously done talks such as “Archaeology in Your Backyard” (Hamilton County Library – Harrison Branch), “Building Communities: Public Archaeology of an Early Fort Ancient Village” (Cincinnati AIA Society), “Careers and pathways in Archaeology (Jobs for American Graduates Program – Lawrenceburg H.S., Seymour H.S.), and “Archaeology of the Tristate: Prints of my Ancestor’s Houses” (NKU Guest Speaker Series).
