Reposted from [personal profile] peachpai, with permission. Also, you don't need to be in the US to sign the petition:

Some members of the US House of Reps are trying to cut NSF (and NEH) public funding for archaeology and other social science projects because of some bullshit excuse about relevancy. Please consider signing this official Society for Historical Archaeology petition to tell them to stop this nonsense: https://www.change.org/petitions/us-representatives-eric-cantor-and-lamar-smith-continue-to-support-publicly-funded-archaeological-research-2

There's more info about what's going on at the link, and even more at the SHA blog here. Guys, this is a really big deal. NSF is a huge source of funding for archaeological science and it would be a major blow if we lost it. It's hard enough to get historical archaeology money out of them as it is. NEH is also facing huge cuts, and you can sign another petition by the National Humanities Alliance here.
