Archaeology & Historic Preservation Month Posters

Since 1990, the first year of celebrating Archaeology and Historic Preservation in Colorado (it lasted just a week then!), History Colorado’s Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation has worked with AHPM partners to design and produce a poster that represents the theme of the year.  Distributed to preservation and archaeological organizations statewide, the poster highlights Colorado and AHPM in a visual, artistic way that brings awareness to topical issues in the field.

Many thanks to our partners who have supported AHPM for the past twenty-three years and contributed their time and creativity to each year's poster!
