Last week the Office of the State Archaeologist (OSA)announced that the dates for the 2011 Minnesota Archaeology Week (MAW) will be May 14th through the 22nd. It was moved back a week to try and avoid the inclement weather that has occurred during recent MAWs, mainly cold and snow. I’ve attached the formal announcement letter and the form to submit events to be added to the OSA calendar. In an attempt to try and improve participation and event attendance the OSA is considering moving MAW to September in 2012. The OSA would be interested in hearing your thoughts on making MAW a fall event. You can email the OSA at email@example.com with your comments.
