Micronesian Area Research Center

MARC has revived archaeological studies at UOG in partners with Guam Preservation Trust, Guam Historical Preservation Office, the U.S. National Park Service, and through CLASS course offerings. 

Direct outcomes include internships with Guam agencies, student employment as archaeological technicians, and contributions to Preservation Planning in Guam and the region. MARC has compiled and digitized the archaeological reporting and site atlas database, and has trained students and provided resources for professionals in the region. 

MARC has renewed archaeological and historical publications in the region with monographs and volumes on projects and sites in Guam and the Marianas, the Non Nok Tha site in Thailand, and American Samoa.
