Archaeological Conservancy

The Archaeological Conservancy, established in 1980, is the only national non-profit organization dedicated to acquiring and preserving the best of our nation’s remaining archaeological sites. Every day, prehistoric and historic archaeological sites in the United States are lost forever. Looters use backhoes and bulldozers to recover artifacts for the international market while urban development and agricultural methods destroy ancient sites. The Conservancy has acquired more than 285 endangered sites in 38 states across America. These preserves range in size from a few acres to more than 1,000 acres. They include the earliest habitation sites in North America, a 19th-century frontier army post, and nearly every major cultural period in between.
