Mission Statement

Through such means as The Archaeology Channel, our streaming media web site (www.archaeologychannel.org), ALI spreads the benefits of archaeology worldwide through multiple media and new technology. We believe archaeology promotes world harmony through improved understanding of the common origins of all humanity. Founded in 1999, ALI addresses problems facing archaeology today, including increasing damage to archaeological sites, the "gray literature" problem (reports with very limited distribution), insufficient collaboration with indigenous peoples, a lack of archaeology in school curricula, a shortage of material written by professionals for the public, distrust of professionals among knowledgeable non-professionals, and inaccurate and incomplete news reports.

Program 1

Our principal project has been The Archaeology Channel, a public broadcasting service that delivers the excitement and the important messages of archaeology to people everywhere. Our videos about archaeology and indigenous peoples reach a worldwide audience from our web site (www.archaeologychannel.org). To view, simply log on to our web site, select a video, and click on your connection speed. The video pops up on your monitor along with text and web links pertaining to the subject of the video. The faster your Internet connection, the better the picture and the viewing experience. Our initial slate of videos comprises North American subjects, but ALI is developing partnerships to offer a truly worldwide variety of programs and important contributions from and about indigenous peoples. This new tool has the potential to deliver compelling elements of school curricula. We are working to realize that potential in concert with organizations dedicated to public education.
