Archaeology at Monticello

Archaeology at Monticello

While east coast temperatures might suggest otherwise, summer is only 5 months away and with it the annual Monticello-UVA Archaeological Field School. This summer we will continue our exploration of Site 6, an early-19th century slave quarter with evidence of at least two socially distinct households. For more information and application instructions see the attached flyer.

Join our trip to the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Anthropology and Archaeology on Saturday March 18. The museum has exhibits on the history and culture of societies in Africa, Asia, and Mesoamerica and has a particularly good collection of ancient Egyptian artifacts. As part of our trip, we will have a private lecture from Dr. Steven Phillips, a forensic anthropologist, who will talk with us about his research on mummies and Egyptian archaeology.

After touring the museum, we will stop by the Reading Terminal Market in Philadelphia where you can shop for some of Philadelphia’s famous foods.

The trip is free and open to all CCBC students. The bus will be leaving from the Essex campus at 8:30 am and returning to Essex about 5:00.

You must register for the trip in advance by going to the office of student life on the bottom floor of the Romadka Student Center (same building as the bookstore and café). A $10 deposit is required to hold your space, but I will hand you that money back on the day of the trip. You can use it to buy lunch at the market!

Don't forget about the Pumpkin Carving party on Friday October 28 from 3-5 in the Arts and Humanities building, room 146. We will try to match the style of some Pre-Columbian societies. See you there!

10/12/2016

Due to a scheduling conflict, the club will not meet on October 17, but we have three other events planned for October. Please join us!

- The Role of Connection to Nature on Psychological Well-Being and Spirituality
Wednesday October 26, 1:00-2:00, Arts and Humanities Building, Room 130
Most of us feel better after a walk outdoors or at the sight of something beautiful in nature. Dr. Heidi Schreiber-Pan has studied extensively the connection between our well-being and nature.
During her presentation, she will share her research into the intersection of three distinctive concepts: connection to nature, psychological well-being, and spirituality. Dr. Schreiber-Pan will discuss how nature impacts human resilience and overall mental health, and the role of spirituality in this relationship. This event is co-sponsored with the Essex Environment Club.

- Pre-Columbian Style Pumpkin Carving
Friday, October 28, 3:00-5:00 in the Arts and Humanities Building, Room 146
Challenge yourself to carve a pumpkin in the style of one of the Pre-Columbian cultures of the Americas. Examples of ancient Olmec, Najarit, Jalisco, Zapotec, Remojadas, Maya, and Moche carved faces will be available as models. Expand your pumpkin carving skills and get messy! Co-sponsored with the Art Club.

- Dia de Los Muertos/Day of the Dead Celebration
Tuesday November 1, 12:30-2:00, College Community Center room 123
The Day of the Dead is a tradition celebrated in Mexico and in many communities in the United States. Families commemorate their dead with visits to the cemetery, with altars and decorations, and with music and dancing. The altars are decorated with the favorite food and objects of the deceased. So the sadness over the death of family members is replaced by joy in commemorating their memories. We will have a presentation on the holiday, make Day of the Dead crafts and enjoy Mexican food. Co-sponsored with Mundo Hispano.

gaming in color

Join us on Monday April 4 at 2:30 in BESS 326 for a screening of the film Gaming in Color.

Diverse queer themes in game storylines and characters are an anomaly in the mainstream video game industry, and LGBTQ gamers have a higher chance of being mistreated in social games. This film explores how the community culture is shifting and the industry is diversifying, helping with queer visibility and acceptance of an LGBTQ presence.
