 Education and Outreach - Resources for Archaeologists Minimize

The SAA Principles of Archaeological Ethics encourage all archaeologists to undertake public education and outreach, and to support the efforts of others in these activities. The Society provides a variety of resources to support these efforts. Explore Archaeology for the Public to find a complete listing.

Outreach materialsinclude brochures, hands-on activities for state archaeology week/month events, tips for creating successful exhibits and lessons, and informaion for the media. Members may borrow the SAA tabletop display for their outreach events. 

Undergraduate/Graduate Curriculum Resources include Making Archaeology Teaching Relevant in the XXI Century  (M.A.T.R.I.X.) -- a source of information, ideas, and course materials for college and university professors in the U.S. who teach undergraduate archaeology.  In addition, the SAA Committee on Curriculum has recently developed a Model Curriculum for a Masters in Applied Archaeology.

Public Archaeology Educational Resources are available through Archaeology for the Public--a clearinghouse of materials for both archaeologists seeking resources for use in public outreach, and for the public seeking informaion about archaeology. Resources include a scholarly public archaeology bibliography, course syllabi, and much more.
