WELCOME

The Columbia Center for Archaeology is designed to bring together those interested in the archaeological study of the past, materiality and the modern world, and heritage and museum studies, among other topics. We foster collaboration in teaching and research between the many archaeological researchers based in different departments and schools at Columbia and Barnard. We also arrange lectures, workshops, and other events, many of which are open to the public. More information on the Center’s history, aims and facilities.
