Stanford University

Our Mission

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. Through dedicated lab facilities, workshops and lectures with international scholars, opportunities for hands-on fieldwork and access to the University’s Archaeological Collection, the Center provides a unique experience that fosters dynamic links between scholars in disparate fields.
