You can follow us on Facebook to get current updates on Tennessee archaeology and find out about future events.

On behalf of TCPA’s board, officers, and membership, thank you again for following along through 30 Days of Tennessee Archaeology!

These remains include the fossils (preserved bones) of humans, food remains, the ruins of buildings, and human artifactsitems such as tools, pottery, and jewelry.

From their studies, archaeologists attempt to reconstruct past ways of life.

The archeological record encompasses every area of the world that has ever been occupied by humans, as well as all of the material remains contained in those areas.

Archaeologists study the archaeological record through field surveys and excavations and through the laboratory study of collected materials.

If you attended Archaeology Day, one of our happy hours, or if you followed the blogfest and like what TCPA is doing, you can help ensure that this work continues and that we continue to expand our outreach efforts by joining or renewing your membership in TCPA today.
