Give Now: Open Access Archaeology Fund

By giving to the Open Access Archaeology Fund you help to reduce the barriers to open archaeological research and advance knowledge of our shared human past.

For over 20 years, Internet Archaeology and the Archaeology Data Service (ADS) at the University of York have been internationally recognised for our high, open standards, innovation and best practice in archaeological publication and digital archiving. Free, open access to archaeological research and data offers significant and enduring academic, professional and social benefits.

Internet Archaeology and the ADS provide access to a broad range of international archaeological research and its underlying data. This is the most effective way of ensuring that such research can be integrated and built on to further knowledge of our shared human past.

Although many have access to funds via their research sponsors to cover an article or deposit charge, there are other researchers for whom funding is simply not available despite research quality and whose digital data is potentially at greater risk. Our Open Access Archaeology Fund aims to put that right in this our 20th anniversary year.

As the Fund develops we will publish annually:

  • the total of funds given by our supporters
  • a list of all the articles and archives assisted by your generosity.

Everyone who donates over £25 will receive one of our most desirable USB trowels as a token of our appreciation

Please consider making a gift, or if you are able making recurring monthly donation of your choosing, this will help us to plan the support the Fund can give. Thank you.
