VCU Archaeology

At the Society for American Archaeology annual meeting, Part II

by Bernard K. Means

Yesterday, I participated in the Lightning-round session and gave a three minute presentation in “SO DO YOU, LIKE, WEAR A HAT LIKE INDY?” “COOL, I LOVE DINOSAURS!” “MY GRANDPA HAS THIS REALLY AWESOME POT IN THE ATTIC.” “CAN YOU SHUT DOWN THE PIPELINE?”—EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION ABOUT ARCHAEOLOGY IN THREE MINUTES OR LESS” session sponsored by Public Education Committee and Public Archaeology Interest Group, and moderated by Rebecca L. Simon, Elizabeth C. Reetz and Meredith Anderson Langlitz. I spoke about the institutional legacy of enslavement at Virginia Commonwealth University and Richmond as a whole, our lab’s efforts to 3-D document artifacts from enslaved contexts throughout Virginia, and how archaeology is relevant to contemporary problems, including the serious issue of human trafficking today. I finished with 14 seconds to spare.
