Montana SHPO is looking for an Archaeological Field Instructor

Montana SHPO is looking for an Archaeological Field Instructor. We are partnering with the Montana Discovery Foundation to host an Archaeological Training experience for High School Students. This would be a perfect opportunity for a Graduate or Undergraduate Student to get some field experience. The Field Instructor is not required to have prior archaeology field experience, we will teach them what they need to know. SHPO and DNRC archaeologists will be in the field with the crew.

See the attached flyer for more information.

Stuart Connor Passing

MAS is sad to announce the passing of Stuart Conner in Billings recently. For those of you who didn’t know Stu, he was one of the founders of MAS and a long-time supporter. He was known nationally for his recording of petroglyphs and pictographs and was acknowledged by the Society for American Archaeology for this work through the award of the Donald Crabtree Award for Avocational Archaeologists in 1992.
