Welcome to Project Archaeology - we have specialized areas for Students and Teachers. close

Discover the past ~ Shape the future

Project Archaeology uses archaeological inquiry to foster understanding of past and present cultures; improve social studies and science education; and enhance citizenship education to help preserve our archaeological legacy.

“Discovery is nothing more than observing what is already there.”

The Academy will focus on the curriculum Project Archaeology: Investigating Shelter, an inquiry-based social studies and science curriculum, which guides students through a complete archaeological investigation of shelter.
