Archaeology provides students with a broad and rigorous introduction to the analysis of the material culture of past societies.
Integrates artifactual evidence
The Stanford Archaeology Center is an interdisciplinary hub focused on innovative research and education in archaeology and heritage. We seek to understand the past and also the complex ways in which the archaeological past contributes to contemporary and future worlds. We work to redress the colonial foundations of archaeology through an enduring commitment to ethics and to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion. Through dedicated lab facilities, workshops and lectures with distinguished scholars, opportunities for hands-on fieldwork and access to the Stanford University Archaeological Collection, the Center supports excellence in archaeological research and fosters dynamic links between scholars in disparate fields.
