I’ve been thinking a lot these last few weeks about my project for my CHI fellowship. As I have mentioned before, I strongly believe in making archaeology accessible to a broad range of people. In my work with the State Archaeologist of Michigan, as well as with various school groups, I’ve noticed that there are several things most folks really want to see: a timeline of Michigan archaeology to help put things into perspective, and lots of artifacts. You can view a basic version of the current available timeline on the State Archaeologist’s website. However, this timeline is very basic and lacks any interactive features. It also highlights very few artifacts.
