Collection Highlights


This section is organized by geographic regions and provides representative images, metadata information and collection guides to some of our extensive collections.  When you click on the region, you will be taken to a new page where you can learn more about that region.

A guide to the collections refers to access to the records associated with an investigation.  The guides, developed in cooperation with the KU Scholar Works and the Spencer Research Library, centered on creating a finding aid.  The finding aid was designed following EAD (encoded archival description) standards while the selected fields reflect the nature of the archaeological records.  Where available, access is also provided to an associated report.  As resources permit, photos and maps will be added.

The 3D imaging icon allows you to view a sample of our collections that have been scanned using our 3D scanner.  The scan allows you to rotate the artifact in multiple directions.  Additional scans will be added in the future.
