Need an Archaeology Partner?

ARI provides various opportunities for students who are interested in archaeology, history, land stewardship, and non-profit careers. These include internships, co-ops, AmeriCorps service learning, and project-based work. In addition, ARI offers a comprehensive field school focused on Ohio River Valley archaeology. This field school goes above and beyond the typical expectations by offering exceptional training and experience both in the field and in the lab.

At present, we have established partnerships with numerous colleges and universities across various states, and we continuously expand our network each year. Our organization has successfully delivered educational and groundbreaking opportunities in the field of public archaeology to students nationwide. If you are interested in collaborating with us or wish to enroll your students in our field school, please feel free to contact us for further information.

We are thrilled to announce our ambitious $5 million campaign to build ARI Basecamp 2.0, a groundbreaking facility, located in Lawrenceburg, IN,  that will revolutionize the field of public archaeology in the region.
