Have you always wanted to be an archaeologist? Do you enjoy learning about the past and exploring material culture? Then join us in this “Do-It-Yourself Archaeology” challenge.  By highlighting the importance of public participation and community involvement, we discuss how DIY archaeology initiatives can play a crucial role in documenting and understanding our past, through ethical practices and scientific rigor, and its potential for democratizing access to archaeological knowledge and fostering a broader, more inclusive understanding of our shared heritage. By digitally and physically preserving discoveries made through DIY Archaeology, we can even ensure that the legacy of labor is documented and shared in an accessible manner for future generations, honoring the hard work and contributions of our ancestors and ensuring that the lessons of the past are learned and appreciated by all.
