Connecticut Archaeology Center

2019 Hillside Road
Storrs Mansfield, CT 06269


In 1987 the Office of State Archaeology (OSA) was established as a part of the Connecticut State Museum of Natural History to provide local municipalities the technical assistance they needed to help preserve archaeological resources within their communities. In 2004, the Connecticut Archaeology Center was born out of  this  17-year  relationship  between the OSA and the Museum. This expanded partnership is intended to bring the OSA's  expertise  in  technical  assistance  together  with  the  Museum's strengths in collections conservation and educational programming to create a comprehensive source for archaeology resources in Connecticut.
The Connecticut Archaeology Center, located at University of Connecticut in Storrs, is evolving to serve a variety of audiences -- federal, state and town officials, professional and amateur archaeologists, academics, graduate and undergraduate students, K-12 educators, community groups, and the general public -- with a variety of tools and services including professional training, research resources, university teaching, professional publications, public and school programming, exhibits, educational kits and internet resources. Although our scope and reach have greatly expanded since the early days, our basic mission has remained constant: to encourage the preservation of Connecticut's archaeological resources through a combination of research, collections conservation, technical assistance and education.
