Join us each September for Vermont Archaeology Month (VAM)! Founded in 1995 by the Vermont Archaeology Society, VAM highlights Vermont’s remarkable ancient and historic past through informative lectures, interesting workshops, hands-on demonstrations and fun outdoor recreation opportunities.

Vermont Archaeology Month was an unqualified success again this year. With 33 events held throughout the state and with a total attendance of 1,713, there is little doubt that VAM is fulfilling its mission to provide exposure, education, and outreach about archaeology and Vermont’s deep and rich past. This report attached here provides a summary of the events that comprised VAM in 2016, a detailed analysis of the logistics and trends observed throughout the month, and recommendations for VAM 2017. It is hoped that this report and the recommendations contained within it will provide a springboard for further VAM improvements and refinements in the years to come.Vermont Archaeology Month was an unqualified success again this year.
