Each October, Texas Archeology Month (TAM) features events such as archeological fairs, lectures, exhibits, demonstrations, and tours in collaboration with the Texas Historical Commission (THC) and our partners across the state. TAM is a vital educational program that the THC will continue to promote and support even under current circumstances. However, in response to the pandemic, the THC is currently working to reorganize TAM to be safer and more accessible by promoting and facilitating virtual events and activities on the TAM website . Events can take place on many platforms including videos, virtual tours, live-streamed presentations, and printable activities, and more. Check out the TAM website for a list of ideas and best practices for suggested ways to participate and contribute!
CALL FOR TAM 2020 EVENT AND ACTIVITY SUBMISSIONS!!
We are now soliciting contributions from our TAM partners, and the 2020 Texas Archeology Month Event/Activity Form is live! Please complete and submit it as soon as possible. **We understand you may not have all the information yet (tentative dates/times, still searching for speakers, etc.), and that’s okay! Just submit what you have now and send the TAM coordinator updates as needed.** Like previous years, we will provide free archeology-related printable materials, which you can receive by submitting the Public Outreach Materials Order Form or emailing Donna McCarver (firstname.lastname@example.org ). Please feel free to share this e-mail with anyone you know who might be interested in participating!
The THC understands there can be difficulties with organizing online events, and we’re here to help. We can act as moderators, locate speakers, and help with technological issues. For more information about our resources, support, and the new structure of TAM, visit our website at www.thc.texas.gov/tam or contact TAM Coordinator Maggie Moore at Maggie.Moore@thc.texas.gov .
We look forward to celebrating TAM with you!
