Memberships JUMP TO SIGN - UP OPTIONS Sign-up today we will plant a tree to mark your membership Given our mission to encourage sustainable travel, we are mindful of the carbon emissions that result from people using our website.For this reason we have chosen a registered green hosting company, Guru Cloud Hosting. In addition to this and to celebrate your membership with us, we pledge to plant a tree on your behalf when you choose the Newsletter Sign-up option.We have partnered with Ripple Africa, who have been working in Malawi for 20 years. To date they have supported communities to plant 21 million trees, and they work with 1,800 Forest Conservation Committee members to protect 340 square kilometres of forest. The protection of these existing trees is just as important as the need to plant new trees. In their project, for every tree planted three existing trees are protected. Choose Your Membership Archaeology Travel is more than a collection of articles with useful information. Ours is a truly unique travel website allowing you to benefit from the experience of others and create individualised itineraries that suit your interests.The website will always remain free for all to access and use, but with reasonable limitations.To make use of the features available on this website, that is to do anything other than read the information on the pages, you will be required to verify yourself via email.We are still fine-tuning parts and adding final touches to the system. Specifically, the help system is being developed – as we see how people use the website. We have prepared a simple introduction page that describes the most important features for now. You can find it here.Currency – called Travel-CoinsMany areas and actions are built on a simple internal currency system. As we test drive its integration during the beta phase we are not limiting or charging for anything. You should always have enough travel-coins to explore and test the various features.Future Account OptionsAt the end of the beta phase, users will be automatically moved to the free membership tier. You will have the option to upgrade to other tiers whenever you choose.
