University Press of Florida

The archaeology of academia is not new. For decades both faculty and cultural resource management archaeologists have endeavored to reveal and salvage the ephemeral traces of these educational institutions and their surrounding community. Often they have been one step ahead of the bulldozers. In 1995, Santa Clara University established an Archaeology Research Lab to coordinate campus-focused research, provide oversight for cultural resources, support teaching efforts, and curate artifacts and supporting documentation generated during campus construction and research projects. The Saints' Rest project of 2005 proved to be a watershed event for archaeology at Michigan State University. The Archaeology Research Lab has worked closely with the Santa Clara University Archives and faculty from environmental studies, history, and modern languages. They also offer opportunities for donors who wish to leave a legacy, while enhancing the image of the university as a place where education occurs throughout the campus.
