WHY STUDY THIS PROGRAM?
The Archaeology option, housed within the Anthropology department, at Millersville University is dedicated to learning and understanding the role that Lancaster County and Colonial Pennsylvania played in the context of the larger colonial Atlantic World by way of ethical archaeological excavation, historical analysis and documentary research. Our goal is to illuminate the rich history of one of our nation's first culture hearths by revealing Lancaster's economic and cultural history. It is our hope that through our research we may accurately demonstrate the roles the people of Pennsylvania and Bermuda played during the colonial period and how they contributed to the birth and growth of the early United States.
