This partnership grant provides funding to the Office of the State Archaeologist for the retention of a graduate assistant during the 2019-2020 academic year. The graduate assistant will work with artifact identification, typing and cataloging as well as some additional responsibilities in required site research and report writing to allow the State Archaeologist more time for outreach and educational programming to benefit the public. The grant allows for the distribution (and creation) of content connected to Connecticuts rich archaeological heritage for CTH platforms including ConnecticutHistory.org and TeachItCT.org. In addition to classroom presentations during the 2019-2020 school year, programs will also take place during the summer of 2019 and include digs for kids, adults, veterans, and teachers.
