The Archaeology Program was founded in 1967. Cornell is one of the few universities in the United States that offers a separate archaeology major in addition to its graduate program. The program also offers a new post doc in archaeology. Our faculty's specialties range from studies of early peoples to the historic 19th century, within the following departments and programs: American Indian studies, anthropology, classics, earth and atmospheric sciences, historic preservation, history of art and visual studies, landscape architecture, and Near Eastern studies. Archaeology at Cornell is particularly strong in the eastern Mediterranean area, and in the Americas (both pre- and post-Columbian). Some members of the program also are active participants in area studies programs, and faculty and students routinely work with other programs and departments. Faculty members are involved in long-term research projects in Cyprus, Greece, Honduras, Israel, Italy, South Africa, Turkey and in New York State.
