Celebrating Indiana Archaeology Month

INDIANA – September will be the 27th annual celebration of archaeology in Indiana state and the return of the DNR Division of Historic Preservation & Archaeology printed commemorative posters.

The 2022 poster design focuses on late Pre-contact pottery styles. The ceramics of the Late Pre-contact period of Indiana indicate that Native American groups were not static but were diverse, dynamic, and complex. We celebrate the diversity present in these unique artifacts.


If you would like a poster, stop by the DHPA office at 402 West Washington Street, Room W274 in Indianapolis. You can also visit DHPA archaeologists at one of our Archaeology Month events, where we will have posters and other handouts (including printed copies of Early Peoples of Indiana, or you may contact our office to request a poster.
