  • Description - Connecticut Archaeology Center

    The Museum of Natural History and Connecticut Archaeology Center are home to the University of Connecticut's Anthropological Collections and represents the single largest repository of Connecticut Native American, colonial and industrial artifacts in existence. The materials housed here document over 11,000 years of Connecticut's past. Many of the artifacts are one-of-a-kind, representing a last link to our early cultural heritage. The Office of State Archaeology is charged with both the conservation of these collections, to ensure their continued physical preservation, and their curation, to make sure the information they contain is systematically organized and readily usable. Since the formation of the OSA, the collections have evolved into an invaluable resource for historical and archaeological research projects, graduate student theses and dissertation research, and public educational exhibits. The collections are not only a vital resource within the University community; their reach is felt throughout New England.
