A program based at Montana State University that promotes archaeology to students around the country will host a night of appreciation on Tuesday, March 18, at MSU.

The event, “Project Archaeology: Celebrating Our Partners in Education,” will be held from 6-7:30 p.m. in the Hager Auditorium at the Museum of the Rockies. The event is free and open to the public.

As part of the event, Project Archaeology will screen an instructional video, “Investigating Shelter,” that was created as part of its curriculum. The video depicts teachers and students working to preserve cultural heritage through their investigations of the shelters of American Indian tribes, slaves, colonists and settlers, according to Crystal Alegria, Project Archaeology coordinator. Groups that have contributed to the video include MSU, the Bureau of Land Management, the Bozeman School District, the Museum of the Rockies and Jen Grace Productions.

The event also includes a reception.

“Project Archaeology: Celebrating Our Partners in Education” is part of MSU’s Year of Engaged Leadership, which highlights the university’s events and activities that develop leadership skills of students, faculty, staff and community members.

A joint program of MSU and the BLM, Project Archaeology is located in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at MSU. More information about Project Archaeology is available at
