USA Archaeology Museum


Ground-breaking research at sites like Old Mobile and Port Dauphin has revealed much about Alabama's earliest colonial history. The rapid pace of modern development has also led us to sites like Bottle Creek, the Exploreum, and Dog River Bridge, where Indians and French, British, Spanish, and Early American settlers left their marks on the landscape.

Students become involved in all of our research projects, getting hands-on experience outside of the classroom with the scientific methods of modern archaeology.

Much of our understanding of the past comes from careful laboratory study of the artifacts found while digging.

Besides this website, we communicate information on our findings through our occasional newsletters and frequent public lectures, publications, and through loans of artifacts for museum display. Contributions to the Center for Archaeological Studies support the research and the dissemination of our discoveries.

Your tax-deductible contributions help save parts of our region's past that would otherwise be lost forever. Please enable us to do more by sending a check, payable to the "University of South Alabama," to:

The University of South Alabama created the Center for Archaeological Studies in 1992 to promote and support archaeological research on historic and prehistoric sites of the northern Gulf coast region.

The Center's full-time staff of archaeologists have carried out over 300 survey and excavation projects during the last ten years.
