Sponsorships

American Veterans Archaeological Recovery (AVAR) integrates military veterans with physical or mental disabilities into a community of archaeological researchers that supports their rehabilitation through goal-oriented, team- centered excavations. The social bonding and shared experiences of participants is an important feature of American Veterans Archaeological Recovery. Participants share their new experiences in archaeology with others from the community of veterans and will make new connections in the community of academic and professional archaeologists working to discover and preserve the physical evidence of our common cultural heritage.

Your sponsorship of our program provides transportation, food, lodging, tools, tours, recreational activities and safety equipment for disabled veterans, veteran family members and active duty personnel while they are engaged in important archaeological fieldwork.

Project Sponsors

Help provide a sense of accomplishment, mastery of new skills, peer support: Archaeological excavation is an incredibly effective in creating strong, cohesive groups. This already occurs on digs around the world as the volunteers bond around the shared sense of adventure and accomplishment. For many it is this social element, as much as an interest in the past, that keeps them coming back year after year. AVAR takes this aspect of the excavation environment and enhances it by introducing staff members with leadership and teambuilding skills honed through years or decades of military service.

Preservation of historically important structures and artifacts: Excavations have a mission, a specific research objective, which dictates the excavation strategy and the equipment that will be utilized in the field. The success or failure of this mission can change our understanding of history. The work requires constant interaction and cooperation among small groups. Normally the dig team lives and eats in close proximity to one another. The work is physically demanding but also requires precision and constant concentration as every bit of dirt removed could change the interpretation of the site. Veterans are right at home in these conditions; most say archaeology digs remind them of their time in service. They want to be part of something larger than themselves again. AVAR lets them do that.

We Need Your Help

Veterans that work with our program are assigned to roles based on ability, regardless of service injury. They are provided training by professional archaeologists from major universities. They create social bonds and shared experiences that promote recovery.

AVAR relies upon partnerships with corporations to ensure we can fulfill our mission in assisting in the recovery of disabled veterans. Financial assistance provides for the transportation, food, lodging, tools, tours, recreational activities and safety equipment for disabled veterans and active duty personnel while they are engaged in important archaeological fieldwork.
