Archaeology in the Electronic Age

Social media has become so interwoven with our lives that it is difficult to imagine not having access to Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, or Instagram on a daily basis.  These outlets for creativity, networking, community-building and information dissemination have had a significant impact on the way we see the world.  Here at Campus Archaeology, we too are part of this network of social media–through our website, blog (which you are reading right now), Twitter, and Facebook page.

This year, I will be focusing on expanding and refining the social media presence of Campus Archaeology.  Our goal is to increase public awareness of our projects which help to illuminate the past of Michigan State University, and to promote the understanding of archaeology as a discipline.

I would like to invite those of you involved at other colleges and universities in on-campus excavations to get in touch with us here at MSU Campus Archaeology contact Andrew Lopinto (lopintoa@msu.edu) or Kate Frederick (hammon85@msu.edu) . Tell us about what you are excavating on your campus and what you have learned about the history of your alma mater!

With the interest of all of you out there who are reading this blog, checking our Twitter feed or who have “liked” CAP on Facebook, we hope to further build our social media presence and present an interesting and informative network of media.  Stay tuned for more updates!
