WAC holds an international congress every four years to promote: the exchange of results from archaeological research; professional training and public education for disadvantaged nations, groups and communities; the empowerment and support of Indigenous groups and First Nations peoples; and the conservation of archaeological sites.
Previous WAC Congresses have been held in England, Venezuela, India, South Africa, the United States, Ireland and Jordan.
