The study defines quality pedagogical patterns for the design and development of archaeological heritage education programs. A literature review on heritage education, with special attention to the Spanish context, first outlines the theoretical framework starting from a general approach to heritage transmission theory and examining specific pedagogical methodologies in archaeology. The second part of the paper reports on a field study that identifies and analyzes best educational practices in Mediterranean archaeological sites and museums. After discussion of the results in the light of the theory, quality patterns for future program design are defined.
