Description: Our new Archaeology and Heritage Studies program explores the archaeology of the New World and the Ancient Mediterranean World. The program focuses on the cultures of North America, in both the pre-contact and post-contact periods after the arrival of Europeans, and the ancient societies of Greece, Rome and the Near East.

Archaeologists seek to learn about the human past through the study of the physical remains left behind by vanished cultures. Artifacts, architecture and environmental evidence all provide valuable clues for the reconstruction of past ways of life.
