HRAF celebrated International Archaeology Day 2022 with a visit from officers of the UConn Stamford Anthropology Society for a full day of events. Archaeology Day is the yearly event for archaeologists to celebrate the discipline and its contributions to society. This was HRAF's first Archaeology Day celebration.
The morning began with a Yale University campus tour hosted by Matthew Longcore (pictured in the article with UConn students Lucy Van Der Merwe and Isabella Walsh). They then enjoyed a lunchtime presentation by Dr. Ben Davies as part of Yale Archaeology Brown Bag Luncheon series on the topic of lithic scatters.
In the afternoon, students were invited for HRAF staff presentations on cross-cultural research and archaeology by President Carol R. Ember, Melvin Ember Intern Jake Kalodner, and Research Assistants Danielle Russell and Anj Droe. Thank you all for visiting!
