The AVP welcomes international volunteers, and the easiest route is through Volunteers for Peace, a non-profit volunteer placement group. VFP volunteers must pay their travel expenses to and from Allegany, NY, but while here, food and lodging are covered by volunteer contributions and a VFP fee. We currently take up to 6 VFP volunteers for two weeks (9 July to 23 July). VFP partners with local volunteer organizations in each country, to make it easier to apply. For more information, you can visit www.vfp.org. Our project code is VFP05-16.
This is the place to find out the latest developments in the AVP. Find out what new archaeological discoveries have been made, and find out how to volunteer for an archaeological investigation.

Add another large section of Pot 'O' to the growing catalogue. We may end up with more than 50% of this particular pot. Join us next season as we investigate the mysterious ditch, continue to work on the longhouse, and excavate the north "neck" of the refuse pit in which most of Pot 'O' was found. July 6 to August 16.
