2020-21 Archaeology First Thursdays

Archaeology First Thursdays are an opportunity to take a deep dive into archaeological practice. Each month our distinguished guests present their research. You have the opportunity to ask questions and join in a discussion with practitioners from across the diverse field of archaeology.

All talks begin at 4 p.m. and will be available via Zoom until in-person gatherings are possible.

Register in advance via Zoom.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

Most talks are recorded and will be posted on PDXScholar after the event.
