Archaeology Instagram Accounts You Need to Follow

Social media are excellent vehicles for public outreach in archaeology. Instagram offers a visual step inside the lives and work of archaeologists. Some are totally serious, some are totally joking, some show their personal lives outside the field.

  1. Hi, I just discovered your blog this week and I’m completely in love. I’m from Brazil and my dream job is to be a Archaelogisty, but here we have some few colleges with the course and is so restrict. I’m now a student of Library Science, but with this dream. Keep doing this, is so cool!

      Thank you so much for reading the blog! There is a lot of overlap between library sciences and archaeology – especially with managing data archives and in museum studies. So there might be a way to bring your passion for archaeology into your training in library sciences!
