World map

Researchers at the University of Michigan are involved in archaeological field projects on five continents. The topics of these projects are diverse, ranging from the early human cultures of the Paleolithic to the states and empires that emerged in Asia, Africa, Europe, and the New World. Work on many of these projects is active and ongoing.
