objects from people of the past

The archaeological collections consist of artifactual and ecofactual material from historical and prehistoric archaeological sites. The majority of the prehistoric artifacts are lithic, although some items made from vegetable or animal products are present. The historical material consists primarily of metal and glass items, although a few wood items are also present.

The archaeological collections include assemblages from research conducted by archaeological avocational groups, professional archaeologists conducting private research, cultural resource management (CRM) contracts, and from donations. Our curation facility is accepted by the federal government as an official repository for site assemblages removed from federal lands. Additional assemblages are the result of valid professional research completed with appropriate permits.
