Sponsorship Guidelines

Last updated: November 2018

Internet Archaeology accepts sponsorship from commercial, not-for-profit and academic organisations to enable you to reach out to a receptive audience with a shared interest in archaeology and heritage, and at the same time, demonstrate your support of open access publication in archaeology. All accepted sponsors must be of archaeological relevance and interest to our readers. We retain the right to refuse any banner which we deem unsuitable.

Reader Profile

Internet Archaeology's readers and followers are a mix of archaeology/heritage students, academics, heritage professionals but also a significant non-specialist audience with an interest in the past. The audience across the website and social media channels is split evenly by gender.
