The Archaeology Channel (TAC)—which is sponsored by the Archaeological Legacy Institute (founded in 1999) and intended for educational use—provides a variety of audio, video, and instructor resources contributed by a multitude of creators. The videos on Burke Museum (YouTube) cover science and research, archaeology, and cultures of the world and include question and answer sessions and instructional presentations by curators and experts. Similarly, Penn Museum (YouTube) provides video content that covers the study of human history, culture, mythology, and diversity, including film and episodes from the museum’s collection of documentary and instructional media from pre-1930s to the present.
