OUR MISSION is to preserve archaeological sites and collections, to curate the collections locally, and to make them available for research and education; to develop partnerships with American Indians, cultural groups and the communities it serves; and to foster a deeper understanding of prehistory and American Indian history in the Verde Valley through the science of archaeology. 



We are pleased to announce the return of our Summer Archaeology Film Fest.  This event offers free archaeology films on Fridays during June, July and August.  Films will be shown at the Sedona Public Library and at the Verde Valley Archaeology Center in Camp Verde.  All films start at 6:30 pm.
