“Archaeology Month allows Hoosiers the opportunity to learn a little about our Indiana ancestors and a lot about ourselves,” said DNR Director Bortner, who is also the State Historic Preservation Officer. “Each year the DHPA team selects a fun new theme to educate and inspire.”

This year’s them is “Cheers, Indiana! Archaeology and the Production of Hoosier Spirits.”
