Welcome to From the Ground Up: An Introduction to North American Archaeology! We are so thrilled be bringing together a diverse and eager group to collaborate on the first open textbook on North American Archaeology.
(If you’re not yet familiar with the project, start by reading the project summary.)
Currently, we are looking for:
- Regional chapter contributors, especially those outside of academia (i.e CRM and museum professionals)
- Descendant community collaborators
- Chapter reviewers with a depth of knowledge on a region in North America
View the full list of chapters.
As the project progresses we will also need help with:
- Accessibility checks
- Formatting in Pressbooks
- Contributing instructor resources

If you are willing to contribute to one of the areas listed above, let us know , giving us a brief bio, an idea of your interests on the project and any questions you might have. We’ll then reach out and make sure you have what you need to get involved!
If you’re interested in the project generally, or still not sure where you’d like to get involved, you can follow the general discussion thread for updates. We’ll keep you posted on how the project progresses and what help we’re looking for at different stage, so you can jump in if and when you like!
