University Press of Florida

Current campus archaeology at Harvard University focuses on the seventeenth century (which includes the underrepresented story of Native American education at Harvard) as a platform for reflecting on the shape and aims of today's educational community as well as relationships to Native American neighbors and indigenous communities around the world. Toward this end, three university entities have come together in exploration and dialogue through a course: The Archaeology of Harvard Yard. In this course, the Department of Anthropology, Harvard University Native American Program (HUNAP), and the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology aim to train students in historical public archaeology as a means to explore educational history, colonial America, and our collective future. The course emphasizes public archaeology and the relationship of study to stakeholders. Students not only explore the guiding frameworks of historical public archaeology but also are given an opportunity to engage archaeologists in dialogue through public events and creating public information.
