Archaeology

2006 Excavations at Dadiwan, Gansu Province, China

The Archaeology program emphasizes comparative study of the emergence and development of complex societies, from their initial foundations in hunter-gatherer behavior to their manifestation as states and empires. This theoretical approach is firmly grounded in the use of empirical archaeological data from around the world to evaluate models that offer understanding of the dynamics of change in human societies.   Faculty and graduate student research most strongly emphasizes Latin America, Eurasia, and North America.  Research is internationally collaborative, and an especially high priority is placed on sound relations with colleagues in regions outside the U.S. where research is carried out.
