We envision a world in which all people understand and appreciate their own culture and history
and the culture and history of others.
UNESCO Convention on Cultural and Natural Heritage
We join UNESCO in the belief that the protection of cultural heritage (a broad term which
includes archaeological sites), as an expression of living culture, contributes to the development of
societies and the building of peace.
Project Archaeology uses archaeological inquiry to foster understanding of past and present
cultures; improve social studies, science, and literacy education; and enhance citizenship education
to help preserve our archaeological legacy.
