Archaeological Sites

Mesa Verde Spruce Tree HouseArchaeology is actually everywhere you look, but it can be a bit difficult to find travel destinations related to archaeology. Here are some resources I’ve found. Some archaeological projects are what most people typically think about: studying ancient native American sites. But don’t forget that archaeologists also study more recent sites, such as presidential homes, historic towns (like Jamestowne and Williamsburg), battlefields, and more! Let me know if you know of other resources!
