Division of Archaeology Collections
The Division of Archaeology collection includes both prehistoric and historic artifacts recovered over more than a century of professional surveys, excavations, and independent collecting. These materials span the entirety of human occupation in Tennessee, stretching back at least 14,000 years before present. The collection is available for researchers by appointment only.
