Archaeology Center and Laboratories
The Archaeology Center displays will be closed until further notice due to facility remodeling.  The main floor of the lab has been packed up and staff have moved downstairs or to other locations on campus. They will now come in and install new floors on the main floor of the Archaeology Lab. It should look nice once everything is finished. We’ll keep you posted as the project progresses.
