Welcome to UVA Archaeology

The Interdisciplinary Archaeology Program is one of the oldest interdisciplinary programs at UVA. Our faculty are composed of archaeologists from both Anthropology (Brooks Hall) and Art History (Fayerweather Hall), working in many parts of the world including Virginia, the Southwestern United States, the Caribbean, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Israel, East Africa, and the Southeastern Inka frontier. In addition to overseeing the major and minor in archaeology for the College of Arts and Sciences we also offer internships, fieldwork opportunities, digital experiences, brown bags, and lectures for anyone with an interest in archaeology. Our classes and seminars address many themes, including households, landscape, mortuary practices, material culture, and religious ritual. ⛏️
