 Welcome to Archaeology for the public...

SAA is in the process of implementing the new SAAweb. Parts of Archaeology for the Public may be unavailable during this process. If you are looking for a page that is currently unavailable please check back soon. Thank you for your patience.

Do you want to visit an archaeology site? Are you curious about what archaeologists do and why? We have information about all this -- and a lot more.

These web pages are designed for members of the public who want to know more about archaeology, as well as for archaeologists who want to know more about working with the public.

Do you have ideas or useful information to add to this clearinghouse? Comment at any time on any aspect of these web pages via our feedback form.
