his paper centres on the role of archaeology in the promotion of the tourism industry in Nigeria. The paper highlights the major roles of archaeology in the progress and development of tourism industry in Nigeria, and note, the unfortunate deliberate non-recognition of the discipline by the tourism sector in the country. It contended that despite this problem, archaeology has done a lot and more is still being done by archaeology and the archaeologists to unveil a lot about the past achievements of Nigerian people. To this end, there is an urgent need for a holistic approach to archaeological research and complete integration of archaeology into the tourism industry in Nigeria. The data for this research was collected through consultation of secondary sources like thesis, textbooks and journals amongst others.
