Society for American Archaeology

Experimental archaeology has become a burgeoning field within that has answered significant questions about human experience driven by the same curiosity, ingenuity, and creativity that allowed our ancestors to thrive. It has also captured the public imagination and provides thousands with a tangible link to a multitude of imagined pasts.

This session aims to explore how archaeologists create those tangible links through experiential learning in the classroom, our communities, and our research sites.

Around 20 papers will focus on the role of experimental archaeology in teaching students, stakeholders and the general public about the activities of the archaeological past.
