Archaeology Month | Division of Archaeology

October is Archaeology Month!


Every year, Louisiana Archaeology Month's statewide programs and events encourage residents and visitors to learn more about the archaeology and history of the state and to protect, preserve, and enjoy these important resources of our rich cultural heritage.


The 2021 Archaeology Month poster highlights a collection from the Ashland-Belle Helene Plantation, focusing on African Americans who lived in Ascension Parish during the 1800s.  Special thanks to the River Road African American Museum for their collaboration.


There are no physical copies of this year's poster.  If you would prefer to print your own, we included three different sizes below the image for you to choose from. The poster is for personal and educational use only.
