Heading up our line-up will be our own Dr. David Clark, talking about the MOCK SKELETAL RECOVERY his students did for his Forensic Archeology course this semester. If you’ve ever wanted to see what really goes into the excavation and interpretation of human remains of the sort portrayed on crime procedural TV dramas, you won’t want to miss this!
In addition, we’ll have our faculty members promoting their exciting line-up of fall courses, which include:
- Prof. David Clark’s HIS 180- Historical Archeology
- Prof. Mike Henry’s HIS 183- Survey of Museum Practice
- Prof. Tara Tetrault’s HIS 186- Collections Management

We’ll also give a quick preview of our summer course,

Come by and see what the Historic Preservation Program is all about!
Are you fascinated by museums but have always wanted to find out more about how they operate behind the scenes? Every time you see a building that was built hundreds of years ago, do you love to imagine what life must have been like for the people who first lived there? Do you like digging in the dirt for nifty old things? Do you simply have a passion for the past that goes far beyond reading books and writing papers?
Then come and find out what NOVA’s Historic Preservation Program is all about!
- Get the jump on the registration rush as program faculty will talk about our upcoming internship opportunities and course offerings in preservation, museum studies and archaeology for the Summer and Fall 2013 semesters.
