About Stanford Archaeology Center
Our goal is to share our passion for research by giving students a strong basis in the discipline and its ethical standards while providing the opportunity for diverse and open-minded enquiry in facing the challenges that confront archaeologists today. The Archaeology Center at Stanford provides a forum for interaction amongst faculty and students in different parts of the University. It promotes theoretical, methodological and ethical innovation and encourages visiting scholars, post-doctoral researchers, faculty and students to work side-by-side on a daily basis. There is a strong global range of interests, with student and faculty researchers working from Southeast Asia to Europe, Africa and the Americas.
We aim to train the future leaders in archaeology and heritage. We provide a robust academic program that has a multi-disciplinary and global reach. We believe that nurturing an environment of collaboration gives rise to opportunities for growth and innovation—elements that make for a stronger generation of archaeologists. We recognize that today archaeology is no longer just about digging up the past. It is also about contributing to the present.
