It is the responsibility of archaeologists to share what they learn with other archaeologists and the public. This helps bring together the many pieces of the archaeological puzzle into a more complete picture.

Information that archaeologists discover can be shared with the public through site tours, brochures, lectures, classroom presentations, displays, videos, websites, artifact shows, television and radio appearances, and through newspaper articles.
