Since 1939, archaeologists affiliated with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have conducted surveys and excavations across North Carolina and the Southeast. The resulting collections, totaling over 8 million artifacts, are managed as the North Carolina Archaeological Collection by the Research Laboratories of Archaeology. The poster below summarizes the temporal and spatial breadth of this collection, highlighting sites that have yielded diverse assemblages, particularly those containing faunal and ethnobotanical materials.
