SCAA's archaeology programs for students are one of the earliest public archaeology programs in America. This story is told in a chapter in the national publication Past Meets Present authors, Jameson & Baugher, Springer 2007:

  • We serve as an advocate for endangered archaeological sites. 
  • We assist the public in identifying artifacts and sites and experiencing primal technology.
  • We provide accurate information to the public about our region’s archaeology, ethnohistory, and Native people through our publications and programs.
