How can you help support out work?

By giving to the Open Access Archaeology Fund you help to reduce the barriers to open archaeological research and advance knowledge of our shared human past. This fund helps researchers with no institutional support.

Thank you! With your help, we have raised 2838 so far!


Set up in our shared 20th anniversary year, the Archaeology Data Service and Internet Archaeology combined forces to launch the Open Access Archaeology Fund, with the specific aim of supporting the publishing and archiving costs of researchers who have no means of institutional support. You can support our efforts by pledging a recurring or single gift.

As the Fund develops we will publish annually:

  • the total of funds given by our supporters
  • a list of all the articles and archives assisted by your generosity

What do you receive?

We are grateful for all gifts and to say thank you, everyone who donates over 25 will receive a token of our appreciation - one of our highly desirable red USB trowels. A limited number of special edition orange and purple trowels are also available for those who make larger donations (Orange for donations of 50-74.99 and purple for 75 and above). Every gift helps. As the Fund develops we will publish here the total funds raised and list the subsequent articles/archives assisted by your generosity. Thank you for your support.
