Mission Statement

The laboratory’s mission is to serve as a repository of archaeological collections that provide an educational resource for the students of the Department of Historic Preservation and the archaeological community; and, that pertain to current and past work of the Center for Historic Preservation.  In addition, our goal is to contribute to a larger understanding of the greater Fredericksburg area through its archaeological resources. The lab’s collections are available to faculty, students, the Fredericksburg community, and outside researchers.
