  1. Crowdfunding is a great way forward for raising small amounts of cash for archaeological research. For successful stories of outreach through crowdfunded archaeology, you can check out:

    Roman DNA Project – http://www.rockethub.com/projects/3709-ancient-roman-dna-project and http://RomanDNAProject.org

    SVG Public Archaeology Program – http://www.rockethub.com/projects/3949-the-svg-public-archaeology-program

    Send John to the Jungle – http://www.rockethub.com/projects/3844-send-john-to-the-jungle

    And the original (at least, the first attempt at this that I saw, which inspired my Roman DNA Project) – The Maeander Project – http://middlesavagery.wordpress.com/2011/06/23/fundraising-the-sound-of-a-ducks-feet/

    Plus, there are other anthropology blogs that have covered the growing trend in crowdfunding, like Doug Rocks-MacQueen – http://dougsarchaeology.wordpress.com/2011/11/13/crowd-sourcing-archaeology-funds-tip-of-the-iceberg-or-passing-fad/#more-1596
