Oregon Archaeology Month

Oregon Archaeology Month is celebrated each October.  Oregon Heritage, which includes the State Historic Preservation Office, celebrates the occasion by producing the Oregon Archaeology Month poster and hosts a calendar of archaeology related events open to the public

The theme for 2019 is Public Archaeology. The 2019 Oregon Archaeology Month poster includes images of public participants who have had the opportunity to work with professional archaeologists across the state. Some were able to learn about important events and activities of the past by participating in archaeological studies at the very places where the events and activities occurred. Others interacted with professional archaeologists at public events. From a military fort on the coast to Chinese mining in eastern Oregon, to the annual Portland State University sponsored Archaeology Roadshow, the opportunities allowed anyone with an interest in archaeology to learn more.

Check out the calendar of events for archaeology related events throughout the year.
