The American Anthropological Association (AAA) and the Society for American Archaeology (SAA) are two primary international organizations of anthropology and archaeology in the U.S. today.


  • The American Anthropological Association

    The AAA provides a compilation of resources, mostly on the web, for teachers and students who want to learn more about human diversity, both cultural and biological, through anthropology's four major fields--socio-cultural, physical, archaeology, and linguistics.
  • The Society for American Archaeology

    The SAA offers various online educational resources including teaching curricula and the online Archaeology and Public Education Newsletter, which keeps educators informed about current research, teacher workshops, state archaeology contacts, fieldwork opportunities, and Web resources.
