Commemorating Indiana’s Bicentennial for Indiana Archaeology Month

The Indiana Division of Historic Preservation and Archaeology (DHPA) is pleased to present the special poster and t-shirt commemorating Indiana’s Bicentennial for Indiana Archaeology Month (September). The 2016 commemorative poster design reflects the first capitol of Indiana, Corydon, and archaeological investigations (remote sensing and text excavations) which have taken place at the site. The shirt design is focused on 200 years of statehood and 12,000 years of culture.
