We are dedicated to the search and recovery of the lost, buried, and sunken treasure sites of the world. It is our goal to work with all archaeologist, museums, universities, private individuals, public organizations, and treasure hunters to locate and insure that all artifacts and treasures are conserved and marketed with respect to cultural and historical values.


Archaeology, is the study of past human societies, primarily through the recovery and analysis of the material culture and environmental data which they have left behind, which includes artifacts, architecture, biofacts, and cultural landscapes(the archaeological record). Due to the fact that archaeology employs a wide range of different procedures, it can be considered to be both a science and a humanity, and in the United States it is thought of as a branch of anthropology, although in Europe it is viewed as a separate discipline all together.

Expedition Resources provides professional archaeological services through our dedicated research team and Dr. John Melancon, Professor of Archaeology.
