Programs for All Ages


Archaeology is the principal way to learn about humanity’s ancient past. In Iowa, archaeologists discover and study the sites, artifacts, and physical remains that make up the past 13,000 years of human settlement.

Iowa Archaeology education and outreach provides programs, resources, and opportunities for all ages to understand and appreciate Iowa’s archaeological heritage and preserve it for the future. Several institutions from across the state work towards this goal!
