Arkansas Archeology Month (March) is an annual event designed to broaden the public’s interest and appreciation for Arkansas’s archeological resources and to encourage the public’s participation in conservation and preservation efforts. Archeology Month is cosponsored by the Arkansas Archeological Survey and the Arkansas Archeological Society and is made possible through the efforts of supporters throughout the state at park, libraries, museums, and other agencies and organizations, providing a wide variety of programs, exhibits, hands-on activities, and tours.

The theme each year is Celebrate Archeology! This broad theme allows for groups, institutions, and other event organizers to focus on topics ranging from precontact archeology, historic archeology, early Arkansas history, and Arkansas’s Native Americans. Local Society chapters often hold events encouraging members of the local community to come learn about archeology and past people. A complete and current listing of Archeology Month events, including late additions (submitted after 1/15), are included in the calendar below.
