We have exciting news about a new streaming channel that our nonprofit has created for shows about archaeology and cultural heritage.


We made this for people who may be tired of mindless reality TV shows, or watered-down content disguising itself as science, and who might be interested in binge-worthy shows, NOT from Netflix, that people can watch on their own smart TVs.


Heritage Broadcasting Service, or just plain Heritage, will launch on January 1.  Developed by nonprofit Archaeological Legacy Institute (that’s us, the people who created The Archaeology Channel at, Heritage at the outset will feature more than 100 outstanding film titles from many countries on familiar subjects such as ancient Egypt, Stonehenge, Mesoamerica, and Peru, but also on diverse and rarer topics ranging from prehistoric astronomers to the only Japanese bombing of the US mainland in World War II.  Many more titles are in the pipeline.  Subscribers will be able to watch all the shows on their smart TVs with Roku as well as on their desktop computers, tablets and smartphones.


You can check out the Heritage site now at, where you can watch many trailers already and read descriptions of the dozens of titles posted there so far.  Although subscriptions ($5.99 per month, with discounts for longer terms) will not be available until January 1, gift cards (at are available already for redemption on and after the launch date.  You can support this nonprofit service now by reserving gift cards as presents or even for yourself.


We are working to spread the word widely about Heritage.  Please help us do that!  Thanks very much.
