The Midwest Archeological Center is dedicated to the study, interpretation and preservation of archeological resources within the National Park System. The Center is also dedicated to providing professional support and consultation to other federal, state and local government agencies. We conduct research on sites ranging from 10,000 year old American Indian campsites to the garbage in Abraham Lincoln's backyard. Center staff provides expertise in geophysical, geoarcheological, and fur trade research specializations, as well as a wide range of other study. The Midwest Archeological Center is organized to provide the highest quality archeological services in an effective, productive and timely manner.
