A History of Preserving Bermuda’s Heritage

Archaeology is central to the Museum’s work. Since the late 1980s the Museum has carried out land archaeology in partnership with overseas Universities and has also supported projects conducted by the Bermuda National Trust. Investigation of these heritage sites provides a glimpse of the social, economic, and political history of Bermuda and offers the community opportunities to learn more about local history and preserve local historical sites.

All archaeological data, finds, and reports are held in trust at the Museum for the benefit of the public. The results are published in the Museum’s annual journal and in the members’ magazine, and the research underpins all exhibits and educational programming.
