I do not want my house to be walled in on all sides and my windows to be stuffed. I want the cultures of all the lands to be blown about my house as freely as possible.

Our Mission

Archaeos is a non-profit organization dedicated to the study and preservation of cultural heritage, both tangible and intangible, irrespective of faith, origin, or gender. We actively participate in, disseminate information about, and/or encourage work in the following areas:

  • Archaeology, Anthropology, & Living Cultures. The exploration, recording, and interpretation of both ancient and contemporary cultures and their languages, traditions, and histories. Advocacy for indigenous peoples, marginalized groups, and endangered languages.
  • Built Heritage, Urban Planning & Cartography. The maintenance, conservation of, and recording of cities and 'cultural spaces', both ancient and modern.
  • Cultural Heritage & Law. The promotion and execution of strategies, legislation, treaties, and agreements for the preservation of both intangible and tangible heritage.

We believe that culture and our shared human history should lie not at the margins of globalization and development but at its very epicenter influencing its direction and its ethics.

Knowledge of other cultures enhances the quality of our lives, fostering self-understanding and community values, and expanding opportunities to vital to bridge the chasms of our differences.
