Wanderland is dedicated to preserving the archeological treasures of our world.   Our archaeology programs are aimed at site preservation, community sustainability, and scientific inquiry.  Cultural resource education and preservation is a vital part of our mission.

Explore the world's archaeological treasures with us.  Our hosts and speakers are talented educators and interpreters of history and their mission is to turn you on to the treasures of the ancient world.

Responsibility Presenting the world’s archaeological treasures to a public audience comes with a large degree of responsibility.  We are bound to not in any way impact these sites.  Just like the Hippocratic Oath, "First, do no harm."  At the same time, these places need your attention.  Visitation and preservation in balance is what we seek.

When you travel to archaeological sites with us expect that our trip leaders will be assiduous in protecting the sites from our impact, and just as enthusiastic in sharing with you its vital importance to local people. Wanderland travels respect the rights of indigenous peoples, their beliefs, and their perspectives.

Tourism, archaeology, and native cultures can co-exist amicably.  In most cases there are no better stewards of cultural treasures than the living relatives of those peoples.  Our programs support these local stewards.

At Wanderland, developing responsible travel destinations means zero impact…

Rock Art –  The Enduring Mystery

We want to invite you to explore with us, and help us to protect, rock art where ever it is found.  Let’s find out why these places are worth saving.
