Tennessee Archaeology Awareness Month for 2022 Begins Today

by Tracy C. Brown

Tennessee Archaeology Awareness Month (TAAM) begins today (September 1, 2022) all across the state of Tennessee. The overall TAAM celebration is sponsored each year by the excellent and venerable Tennessee Council for Professional Archaeology (TCPA), but numerous other governmental and private sector entities join in each September with their own special programmatic contributions to the overall celebration.

The annual 30 Days of Archaeology Blogfest is still being held as part of the 2022 TAAM celebration. Each day in September, a professional archaeologist, archaeology student, museum worker, or guest author writes a major blogpost summarizing one of their archaeological  projects or highlighting some special archaeological or museological subject of interest. The blogposts are almost always fun and interesting to the maximum, and they are usually accompanied with maps, photographs, and/or video clips. You may click on the following safe link each of the 30 days in September 2022 to read the blogpost for that day:

The first blogpost will be available today,  and a new blogpost will be available each day for the next 30 days. Once posted, all of the blogposts remain permanently available to the public on the TCPA website. Information relevant to each blogpost is usually posted on the TCPA Meta/Facebook page, and people can post comments on each blogpost there. You may click on the following safe link to go there:

This year’s blogfest should be a great one. Have fun everyone!!!
