Archeology is the study of ancient history through material remains. Archeologists use excavation followed by analysis to understand past human societies and how they changed over time.

The National Park of American Samoa conducts archeological research within the park boundaries. This work is carried out in conjunction with local communities, who donate time as well as valuable knowledge of local history.

There are numerous archeological sites found within the national park boundaries.
