Archaeology Digital Library

Quick links:

The Archaeology Digital Library is a vital tool for the preservation of knowledge gathered during the archaeological authority process.


When work is carried out under an archaeological authority, a report documenting the work and its contribution to our understanding of the history of Aotearoa is submitted. These reports are housed in the Archaeology Digital Library.

The Archaeology Digital Library also includes reports from site surveys, excavations and research programmes from the 1950s to the present day. It is free to access.
