Topeka - Brown v Board of Education - Kansas Archeology Training Program Field School

Kansas Archeology Training Program at Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site June 3-18, 2022.

The Kansas Historical Society and the Kansas Anthropological Association will hold the annual Kansas Archeology Training Program (KATP) at the Brown v. Board of Education National Historic Site in Topeka. The site includes the Monroe Elementary School and commemorates the 1954 Supreme Court’s decision to end legal segregation in the United States. This was a landmark victory for civil rights in America and helped to inspire the American Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 60s.

Registration will be available online through kshs.org from March 1 to May 31, 2022. Registration is limited based on activity on a day-by-day basis. A full schedule of evening programs will be held in Topeka and vicinity; admission to the programs is free and open to the public.

Please note that the field school, including lab and field work, is closed on Mondays, but classes and programs will be scheduled on these days; participants are also encouraged to explore the area during this time.

For more information contact Nikki Klarmann, Kansas Historical Society Public Outreach Archeologist, Nikki.Klarmann@ks.gov, 785-272-8681, ext. 266.

Registration for this years KATP is now closed, due to limited space walk-on registrations will be dependent on availability each day.
