Social media is becoming more and more a part of archaeology. The Colchester Archaeological Research Team (CART) writes about two blog posts a week and most of the staff members get an opportunity to write. Every other Friday, we send out a biweekly update via email, then post it to our C.A.R.T. Archaeology blog. Part of my job today was to post a jpeg of our email biweekly to the blog.
Public outreach is important to the Colchester Archaeological Research Team. We could not do what we do without public interest and support. We are extremely thankful for our volunteers, interns, and work study students.
We try to participate in or host events that will bring what we find into the community. Every couple of years, our friends group hosts an open house on the park. We are excited and proud of the work we do and we think the public will enjoy it as well.
