The New Hampshire State Conservation and Rescue Archaeology Program (SCRAP) is a public participation program for archaeological research, management, and education.

Interested in Archaeology?

Archaeology is the study of human history and prehistory through the excavation of sites and the analysis of artifacts and other physical remains.

New Hampshire contains an array of archaeological sites worth protecting. These sites are a non-renewable resource which, collectively, constitute a unique record of human achievement spanning at least 12,000 years, from the first human occupation after the retreat of the glaciers, through the displacement of Native American cultures by European colonists, and up to the recent past.

Individuals seeking to learn more about hands on experiences in archaeology should review the NH SCRAP Information Packet and contact the State Archaeologist with any questions by emailing or calling 603-271-6433.
