Archaeology for the People

It has come to my notice that Brown University is holding a competition for accessible archaeological writing: Archaeology for the People.

The deadline to submit an essay or article is September 1st but there is still time to submit an entry. (And there is a $5,000 prize for the winner!) Anyone can participate as explained in the link provided above. The rules and requirements are also mentioned.

Let us all support this and participate thus showcasing our love and interest in this field while at the same time making it easier for people to read archaeological essays and actually understand most of what is written. We can play a part in helping people understand and maybe even develop an interest in the field of Archaeology.

If you aren't participating, at least stay tuned for those selected for publication and lend support.
