    The Society for American Archaeology (SAA) is surveying professional archaeologists and members of the public involved in archaeology education to learn about their use and knowledge of the existing SAA For the Public Webpages.  Information collected will help the SAA update and redesign the webpages to best meet the needs of members and educators interested in archaeological education and outreach.

     

    The survey consists of 13 questions total.  If you have not previously visited the For the Public Webpages your feedback is still needed and appreciated.  The first two questions ask whether you have used the site.  If you respond "yes" to those questions, you will be directed to seven questions asking how you use the current site and your satisfaction levels with various features. The final portion of the survey asks what new aspects of the revised site you would like to see.  If you respond "no" to the first two questions, an additional five questions will ask you about your use of public outreach websites in general.  The survey is a mix of multiple choice and short open comment fields. Before starting the survey, members are encouraged to visit the For the Public webpages:http://www.saa.org/publicftp/PUBLIC/home/home.html but this is not mandatory. Please allow about 10-15 minutes to take the survey.

    The survey will remain open until July 22,2015. Thank you in advance for your participation.  If you have additional comments or questions you can contact Elizabeth Bollwerk, Project Coordinator of the For the Public Webpages taskforce at ebollwerk@gmail.com.

    SIUE's "This Week in CAS" reports on alumna Kaitlin Roberts's work, which led to her winning the IAS's Jeannette E. Stephens Student Paper Award in 2014 for her work on Middle Woodland period Gehring site ceramics. According to the article, Roberts said that “The ceramic assemblage that I analyzed included pottery very similar to that found in the Illinois River Valley, suggesting that people migrated to this area from the north."

    From the National Park Service:

    Mark was the former manager and Supervisory Archeologist at the Midwest Archeological Center, having retired in 2013 after 34 years of service with the National Park Service (please see the link below that was posted on Inside NPS when Mark retired). He was an amazing individual who made major contributions to the profession that he loved and the preservation of resources managed by the National Park Service. He will be forever missed by his family, friends and colleagues.

    The Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge and Interstate 70 Connector cut through about 7 percent of the East St. Louis Mound Center, an ancient city related to Cahokia Mounds. IDOT's Brad Koldehoff and ISAS's Joe Galloy were interviewed for St Louis on the Air by host Don Marsh.
