Welcome to Archaeology at Brown

This site features updates on archaeology at Brown. The majority of these posts will be written by students in Archaeology and the Ancient World courses, but we may occasionally also highlight other archaeological news at the university, or of interest to our community.

In Spring 2014, students from three of our courses will be posting regular updates to this site. They would welcome comments and questions on these posts.
