The Archaeology Program has the ability to undertake a multitude of projects every year thanks to a large, dedicated corps of volunteers. Our volunteers participate in every aspect of archaeology: historical research, excavation, artifact analysis, curation, and educational outreach. Most of our current volunteers previously had professional careers in other fields, and they bring an assortment of new experiences to the Archaeology Program.
Many volunteers are also active members of the St. Augustine Archaeological Association, a not-for-profit organization whose focus is assisting archaeologists in data recovery and providing outreach programs to the community. Their efforts not only assist in preserving St. Augustine's unique past, but also help educate the public about new discoveries.
We remain very fortunate to have committed volunteers who work hard to bring the City's buried past into the light. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please contact Katherine Sims at ksims@CityStAug.com.
