Archaeology

The Royal Saskatchewan Museum has the provincial mandate for collection, preservation, research, and public interpretation of Saskatchewan's archaeological heritage. The Royal Saskatchewan Museum is the primary repository for archaeological materials emanating from Saskatchewan.

The Royal Saskatchewan Museum maintains archaeological material for the purposes of preserving the material in perpetuity, for the non-Indigenous and Indigenous people of Saskatchewan, and for provisional access to researchers from the global archaeological community. Recognizing that archaeological material from Indigenous sites represents the tangible culture-history of Indigenous people, the RSM will work cooperatively with Indigenous communities in the spirit of shared stewardship in caring for collections that relate to their culture-history.
