Savannah River Archaeological Research Program


From public exhibits, community tours, and school visits to volunteer opportunities in the lab and field, we are involved in a variety of outreach programs.

Discovering Archaeology

Discovering Archaeology is our most requested program for school groups.  This program involves a PowerPoint presentation on archaeology, including how we excavate, what we find from both Native Americans and Europeans, and a hands-on component with real artifacts. This simple program lasts between 45 minutes to an hour and is a great way to introduce children to archaeology or to reinforce lessons about American history and prehistory. Discovering Archaeology is best suited for classes in the 3rd grade and above. Teach younger children? Check with us about special programs for 1st and 2nd graders. This program is offered free of charge and in your classroom so there is minimal impact on the students’ and teachers’ schedules. Multiple classes can be handled in the same day, and generally visits are for an entire grade level. Contact Jessica Phillips at to schedule a program today!

Former Resident Homesite and Cemetery Tours

Are you a former resident of the Savannah River Site? The SRARP routinely works with former residents and their families to help research and potentially visit their former homesites.  Contact George Wingard at for additional information.
