What Can the Shell Tell? Dr. Martin Gallivan and Dr. Jessica Jenkins' Research Featured on VA Archaeology Month Poster
September 7, 2023
Every October, Virginia celebrates archaeology through special events and programs at libraries, museums, historical societies, clubs, and at active archaeological sites. Each year the Department of Historic Resources (DHR) produces an archaeology month poster, often in collaboration with other organizations or museums. This year, they have partnered with Dr. Martin Gallivan from the College of William & Mary and Dr. Jessica Jenkins from Flagler College to highlight their joint research initiative on archaeological oyster deposits that will help understand past human-environmental relationships and guide current and future conservation efforts.
