The Archaeology Division

Role of the Archaeology Division



The Archaeology Division maintains an unwavering dedication to the objective of conducting archaeological researches in terrestrial and underwater sites, with a higher goal of placing Philippine archaeological finds in the world's scientific almanac. After gaining autonomy from the Anthropology Division, the 40-stron staff of the Archaeology Division faces greater challenges in Museum's campaign for research excellence.

Responding to the call of the times, the Division now conducts, Archaeological Assessment for each project in strict compliance with the existing laws on cultural and environmental protection. , Finally, extension services in the form of technical assistance, mounting of exhibits, loan of photographs and artifacts are also actively pursued.
