Archaeology of College Hill, an ongoing fall term course and fieldschool for Brown undergraduates, has worked at multiple sites in the area immediately surrounding the Brown main campus. Begun in the fall of 2006 at the First Baptist Church in America, the field school moved in fall 2008 to the John Brown House Museum, and to the "Quiet Green" of Brown University in 2012. In Fall 2015, excavations began at Moses Brown School, on the East Side of Providence.
The Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World promotes the investigation, understanding, and enjoyment of the archaeology and art of the ancient Mediterranean, Egypt, and the Near East. We work in close collaboration with our colleagues in other programs on campus, particularly those in Anthropology whose research is focused on the material remains of the Americas.
