Online Archaeological Experiences

These websites offer students a variety of online archaeological experiences including tours of archaeological sites, interactive digs and lessons, and archaeology games.

Archaeology’s Interactive Dig 

Archaeology Magazine produces this web page which features a current dig that is updated regularly by archaeologists in the field so that visitors to the website can follow the progress of the research. Five years of previous digs are archived on the site.  Although each site is different most include field reports, dig diaries, and interviews with staff and students. Some include virtual site tours, which require a (free) plug-in to view.  A wide variety of sites are featured including historical, prehistoric, Old and New World, and underwater excavations.
