Research at IUMAA

As an Indiana University research center, scholarly research is central to the work of the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology. The Museum’s collections are an invaluable resource for research on diverse societies. The Museum is also a venue where research on informal education and life-long learning takes place.

In these and other ways, research on the human condition is the glue that holds the Museum’s diverse activities together. IUMAA research happens in the Museum’s collections, laboratories, galleries, online platforms, in communities across Indiana, and in distant locations around the world.
