The Kentucky Archaeological Survey undertakes projects throughout the state. Some are conducted in advance of construction by state agencies, while others are conducted to identify sites on public lands, so that state and federal agencies can be better stewards. KAS works with local governments and non-profits on diverse initiatives, including educational projects that involve grade-school children and civic groups who participate in ongoing archaeological research.

Many projects have educational components that result in preparation of booklets, videos, and lesson plans.

We encourage the interested public and communities to participate in many of our archaeology projects and we work with many organizations to develop public archaeology programs.

Please check out our News page or contact us to see if we are currently working near your community or if you would like us to help you develop a public program.

Examples of projects are:
