To learn more about the Museum of Anthropological Archaeology and its role in the development of the field of archaeology, see our video series (below). Our curators talk briefly about the Museum's legendary archaeologists and anthropologists, its remarkable collections of artifacts, and the Museum's critical role in continuing the legacy.



The Museum of Anthropological Archaeology is an international leader in research and student training. Our research collections—which include materials from many parts of the New and Old Worlds—support undergraduate and graduate education, and a portion is displayed in the University of Michigan Museum of Natural History. This website contains information about faculty research, the Museum's organization, and selected images from field work and collections.


We strive to support our students and faculty on the front lines of learning and research; to steward our planet, our community, our campus. To do this, the Museum of Anthropological Archaeology needs you—because the world needs Victors.
