Begun in 1992 as Archaeology Week, Massachusetts Archaeology Month is a month-long celebration of archaeology in Massachusetts and around the world. Museums, libraries, archaeologists, and many more people and institutions join Secretary Galvin and the State Archaeologist in hosting exhibits, lectures, walks, and events for adults, children, and teachers.

The electronic version of the 2013 calendar is currently online and can also be used as a guide to places that host events throughout the year, but please call the event host first to learn more about the current events, fees, and hours.

To be added to our mailing list to receive or to request a printed version of the calendar of events, please contact Jennifer Poulsen at Jennifer.Poulsen@sec.state.ma.us with your mailing address.
