Northern Kentucky Heritage publishes Parker Academy Dig Article

The Northern Kentucky Heritage has published a large article on the Parker Academy Dig site written by NKU’s own Matt Kelly and Katie Crawford Lackey. Going into excellent detail on the history of the Parker Academy itself, the article describes the origins of the Academy as well as the archeological project being undertaken by NKU students as well as a wealth of other organizations in the Northern Kentucky area, including the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center.

With a wealth of pictures and narratives the Heritage article is a fantastic look into the Parker Academy’s importance to Northern Kentucky history, and the work that students have accomplished in unearthing the secrets and mysteries left behind by those who came before us.

Come take a course in Cultural Resource Management or CRM at NKU in the Spring (ANT 308)!

Most people with a BS or BA degree in anthropology are eligible to work in applied archaeology or CRM. This Spring Denise Knisely will teach students about this career opportunity and the specifics of the field. Anthropology 308, or Cultural Resource Management will provide important specialized knowledge for students who seek careers in archaeology, history, or historic preservation.  Cultural Resource Management (CRM) is the archaeology, history, and historic preservation research conducted in response to Federal, State, and Local Laws.  A large number of archaeologists work in CRM, and this course gives students the knowledge to understand the laws and practice for the treatment of archaeological sites and historic resources.  The course takes a topical approach, and will explore how archaeologists, historians, and historic preservationists operate within the CRM industry.

During this class students will learn the laws that govern the treatment of archaeological sites and historical cultural resources, understand how to evaluate cultural resources for eligibility in the National Register of Historic Places, and the importance of public outreach and education in Cultural Resources Management.

The class is offered MWF from 2-2:50 pm.
