The Andrew Fiske Memorial Center for Archaeological Research was established in 1999 through an endowment from Mrs. Andrew Fiske. The Center supports interdisciplinary archaeological research, applied public archaeology projects, and educational programs for students. Center projects study the last thousand years in the Americas and Atlantic World, investigating processes of colonization, urbanization, and industrialization. As part of a public university, the Center also has a commitment to local archaeology in New England. The Fiske Center has special expertise in environmental archaeology, and is a national leader in applying these perspectives to recent sites.
