“Archaeology in Delaware,” a video commissioned by the Delaware Division of Historical and Cultural Affairs and produced by Haywood Productions of Dover, Del., has recently been posted on the Preservation50 website as part of the Making Archaeology Public Project. The video was premiered on May 1, 2016 at the Iron Hill Museum in Newark, Del. as part of the Iron Hill Archaeology and Heritage Festival.
Preservation50 is the United States’ multi-year celebration of the 50th anniversary of the passage of the National Historic Preservation Act. The Act has transformed the face of communities from coast to coast as it established the legal framework and incentives to preserve historic buildings, landscapes and archaeology. Preservation50 reveals the great value that historic preservation delivers to the American people. Its aim is to build a community that leads preservation for the next 50 years.
