Support Us

As a not-for-profit organisation, all our income is allocated towards the cost of running our projects, and fulfilling the aims of the Institute. The major cost of our projects is employing skilled staff to manage the projects and provide training to participants.

A key role of The Uncovered Past Institute is to increase the amount of archaeological work undertaken in Australia, through encouraging public contribution to financing archaeological projects.

You can contribute financially to the Institute’s work by taking part in one of our projects.
