Archaeology Program

The archaeology program at MARC concentrates on the material evidence of past cultural activities. Through new field research and curated collections, we continually learn from the ancient artifacts, sites, and landscapes that have shaped our world as we know it today.
Our program has embraced a broad range of field surveys, excavations, laboratory work, museum studies, and heritage management throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
