News & Events
The Cotsen Institute of Archaeology strives to inform and educate our community of scholars as well as the general public through our public programs and events. Our Public Lecture Series invites national and international scholars, as well as Cotsen Institute affiliates, to present their current archaeological research from various time periods and prehistoric cultures.
Additionally, the Cotsen Institute hosts an Annual Open House each spring where visitors can see firsthand the research conducted in the laboratories, hear faculty give short presentations about their fieldwork, and children can participate in educational activities and games.
During the year, Cotsen Institute affiliates can enjoy Symposia organized by faculty members, Friday Seminars and Wednesday “Pizza Talks” organized by members of the Graduate Student Association of Archaeology.
