This Website is a Work in Progress!

The “soft launch” for THEN’s website happened the last week of March 2017 to coincide with the Society for American Archaeology annual meeting. Over the course of the next few months, we will be adding additional information and resources.  Stop by periodically, learn a bit about THEN, and see some of the exciting things we have planned.

Take the opportunity to join as one of the founding members. More information on our membership categories can be found on the Join page.

Over the course of the next year and a half, with funding from a Wenner-Gren Foundation Innovations in Public Awareness of Anthropology Grant, we will be adding substantial content to this site including an annotated bibliography of heritage education references and materials.

The Heritage Education Network

The Heritage Education Network (THEN) is an alliance for those who use, manage, teach, or create information about past or present peoples and cultures.

We are archaeologists, anthropologists, historians, formal and informal educators, architects, folklorists, museum specialists, interpreters, art historians and others committed to public outreach about cultural heritage. We work together to network, exchange ideas, professionalize, and publish information. We provide a bridge between professional heritage specialists and those who produce, use, and disseminate educational materials.
