About the Center

The Archaeological Research Center (ARC) brings together considerable individual and team experience in the management of cultural resources throughout California and the Great Basin.

Our Facility

Located on the CSUS campus, the ARC facility assumes about 4200 square feet of total space, including secure storage areas equipped to handle formal, interim curation of archaeological collections.

Specific laboratories at the ARC are fully equipped for lithic, paleobotanical, and faunal analyses, complete with extensive comparative collections assembled jointly by the CSUS Anthropology Department and ARC staff.

The ARC also operates an obsidian hydration dating laboratory, and houses a complete graphics/ GIS lab and extensive archaeological library.
