Adina Olbrys: Archaeological Survey Public Outreach

Raising awareness around the importance of Archaeological Survey in NYS

Final project outcome

Student reflections

What I did

For this project, I posted about the University at Buffalo Archaeological Survey on Facebook. This project impacted people within the Buffalo community by allowing them to learn more about the Archaeological Survey and the importance of archaeology in New York State. It also allowed people who previously worked in the Archaeological Survey to remember the impact it had on them during their time at UB.

What I learned

From this project, I learned how to use technology to gain the interest of people in Buffalo. My biggest takeaway from this project is that archaeology is an amazing way to connect with people and get people interested in history. In the future, I want to work in a museum and I'm beginning my MA in Critical Museum Studies this fall.
