Museum of Anthropological Archaeology curators actively conduct archaeological research around the globe. Current research projects explore a wide range of significant questions, striving to understand the beginnings of human culture, the organization of hunter and gatherer societies, the creation of early farming communities, and the emergence and consolidation of sociopolitical inequalities in early chiefdoms, states, and empires.
