- Archaeology Activities for Isolation from Alum Borck
Lewis Borck (University of Missouri; Ph.D. UArizona 2016) has organized a crowdsourced spreadsheet of archaeology/history-oriented educational and public online content as a resource for teachers and students looking for activities/readings/videos they can do at home during social isolation and quarantine. The document, which currently has over 200 global resources, contains everything from VR tours of sites to comic books to craft activities. The document is editable if you want to add anything. Everything is welcome, but Dr. Borck is particularly interested in histories/archaeologies often missed by K–12 education. He asks that you please add to it and/or share it through social media to raise awareness of the resource.
