The Society for American Archaeology (SAA) Taskforce recommended that insofar as possible all these principles should be embedded in every archaeology course, which at the time was a very daunting prospect for most educators. The eight SAA Principles of Archaeological Ethics are fundamental to how archaeologists conduct themselves in relation to the resources, their data, their colleagues, and the public. To answer these needs the authors requested support from the US National Science Foundation (NSF) to design courses that could be posted on the World Wide Web for use by anyone. Half a million dollars were granted to the Making Archaeology Relevant in the XXIst Century (MATRIX) Project, and 30 professional archaeologists from small colleges, large universities, government departments, private contract firms, and museums around the US were invited to collaborate on the project. MATRIX participants designed, peer reviewed and test taught sixteen courses over a period of four years, which all incorporated the seven principles.
