Sharing the Information
Archaeologists share what they have learned with other archaeologists by writing reports of their investigations, publishing articles in professional journals and presenting papers at conferences. It is the responsibility of archaeologists to share what they learn with other archaeologists and the public. This helps bring together the many pieces of the archaeological puzzle into a more complete picture.

Information that archaeologists discover can be shared with the public through site tours, brochures, lectures, classroom presentations, displays, videos, websites, artifact shows, television and radio appearances, and through newspaper articles.
